I don't know, I thought the guy from Blow was a pretty good El Patron.

Same here. Cliff Curtis is the actor's name. He was also in Training Day.

I already saw this episode of Entourage. Vinny gets the part, you guys.

Edgar Ramirez (played Carlos the Jackal in the excellent Carlos miniseries) would be a great Pablo Escobar, too.

Personally, I think I would go with Lucy Liu for that part. But I guess Benny would work too.

Sweet. A movie based on Mark Bowden's book "Killing Pablo" could be amazing.

Oh wait, just read TFA. That story farking sucks.

Cliff Curtis does great work in whatever he is in, it's a shame he doesnt get bigger roles.

//Probably too brown looking.

I like how the article refers to director Andrea di Stefan as a female several times....
 
2012-11-16 11:07:50 AM  
He is seriously the most talented actor of his generation...just look at WolfPhart: Phartmageddon...
He makes great choices.

Escobar: Supernatural Monster Hunter didn't get the green over a romantic thriller? Hollywood just doesn't get it.
 
2012-11-16 11:23:51 AM  
For a moment there I was envisioning Guillermo Del Toro and thought "Did he lose 150 pounds?"

Now, Guillermo directing his own vision of Killing Pablo might be interesting, wherein Pablo is a 12 foot tall demon.

Christopher Walken was made for that role.

/Messicans. They know how to cook meth, huh?

Weekend and Escobar's

Andrew McCarthy and Jonathan Silverman are on a business trip to Colombia and accidentally run over Escobar. With Roseanne Barr as the voice of the wisecracking monkey! Jim J Bullock as DEA SAIC Kip McFelcher that is convinced McCarthy and Silverman are drug mules.

Hilarity! Action! Love!

Coming Winter 2013 from SyFy.

Hand me the farking keys, you corksucker, what the fark?!

Oh, fark, this is going to be awesome. Del Toro does some amazing work: Che, Traffic, Snatch, Usual Suspects.

I hope this turns out well.

It's a shame that I can't find anyone else who's seen it in RL. It was really well done.

Am I missing some inside joke? Or is this just as simple as Benecio del Toro and Pablo Escobar are Hispanic and therefore Benecio is perfect for the role? I'm half-Hispanic, can I be considered?

I have a pinkish hue but my ancestors were illegal aliens from Mexico. I get to play the CIA drug-running pilot or the meth-addled East Coast distributor. Or Anne Hathaway's pimp.

I saw a great article on Escobar. He liked to have fun.

He would have Colombian beauty queens and models over to his house. Then tell them he had put the keys to a new car at the top of a tree at the edge of his property. All they had to do was strip and race to see who got the car. He liked to de-humanize. And watch their lady parts bounce around.

I lived three blocks away from Pablo Escobars brothers house, a rocket was put through it almost 20 years ago, and it still has not been rebuilt. So a super wealthy neighbor hood with this burned out mediterranean looking house with barbed wire around still there til this day.

I also taught Pablos nephew computer science. Imagine a 12 year old driving a new Benz around full of hot whores.

I was out drinking with some buddies and the nephew pulls up and see me and says "Yo teach" and I walk over to the car and he has a gallon jug of Aguardiente, and two of the hottest women I have seen in Colombia. I say "dude, I am your teacher, I am supposed to be a role model" and he says "take the booze, you are right I am too young to be drinking, but the whores are mine" and he drives off into the night.

My best friend Nestor turns to me and says "is your school hiring?"
/cool story bro

I think Benecio will do fine, he is a good name draw, speaks passable spanish, he will never sound paisa, but it will be enough. Besides no one will go see a movie about a short fat spic.

On the other hand my fellow Colombians will rant and rave against the norte americanos disparaging their culture. Then they will go see it in droves, get liguored up, and get back to the whorehouse.

I have a couple of spares to go through if someone happens to my wife.

my girlfriend related to me a few months ago that she went on a couple dates with Del Torro back in her modeling days... I'm not the jealous type, but its a little strange because the dude is in like a 1000 movies, which always serves as a reminder of the fact.... Just in the last 3 weeks, we randomly watched Snatch, 21 Grams, and Savages.

Come to think of it, my previous girlfriend had a major crush on the dude, as well.
