That's... quite a stretch.

Will "Charles" have a British accent?

Makes you think twice about The Doctor's "companions."

Doable, but they're going to need to make his eyebrows less "delicate" (to quote Eleven).

I think Charles Manson's been sufficiently covered in the media. Give me a movie about Shirley.

That's a remarkable resemblance. Except for the face, body type, coloration and height.

Tarantino's going to be blackballed here shortly, so SOMEONE needs to fill that "Manson film" void.

At least it's a good director.....
 
2018-02-07 09:24:35 AM  
He looks absolutely nothing like Manson.  Should have gotten Sam Witwer to play him.

Unless he's seriously changed up his acting style and taken some actual acting classes since the last time I saw him in a role (The Crown), I think this will be an unwatchable shiat sandwich

Glad they didn't. He'd probably have cried and quit acting all over again if they offered him the role

He did a pretty good job of being creepy and threatening on Doctor Who. Kinda wish he'd done more of that than bragging. It's the other weird tics we've all seen from the Manson/Trump montages.
 
2018-02-07 10:48:55 AM  
I'm just happy to see it's not being turned into a buddy comedy starring The Rock and Kevin Hart like every other movie Hollywood is putting out these days.

4/5ths suck? I don't think so, there's plenty of good actors out there. Donald Sutherland is a one note actor, he's always Donald Sutherland, but he makes his parts suit him. Matt Smith is in that vein, but not as talented as Sutherland. Not saying Matt Smith sucks, I enjoyed him as Dr. Who and thought he was excellent in Jessica Jones. It is a valid style of acting and when cast properly it works. But Matt Smith and his style as Manson? Unless he really broke form, it would be nothing but sheer discord.

You know who I'd pick for Manson? Jimmi effing Simpson -- I could see him absolutely owning it

Matt Smith was in Jessica Jones? He was the Lavender Man, right?
 
2018-02-07 11:21:06 AM  
So if you're not concerned about getting someone that looks like him right then why not bring someone in who has that energy and level of batshiat crazy?

Why is Gary Busey not getting the call?

Aww fark -- I got it wrong, it was David Tennant. For some reason I get those two confused

There should be a sequel to Tropic Thunder where Robert Downey Jrs over the top method actor gets a shwatstika tattooed on his forehead for a Charles Manson movie but winds up not getting the role. Then gets wrongfully sent to prison.

Because really, enough with the Charlie Manson shiat.
 
2018-02-07 12:09:36 PM  
I really don't think Ol' Swastika Face was that interesting.  I watched Aquarius because of David Duchovny and I wasn't really drawn in. He was a cult leader who killed a famous woman, we get it already.

~shrugs~  The actors we like all seem to have a special flare but honestly, yeah, 4/5ths of them are just being themselves over and over.

No word if he'll sport a fez
"There's no way you're putting me in a Manson biopic. Now, good day!"
"But, Fez-"
"I said, 'good day!'"
