Skip to comments.FReeper casting call: Who will play Edward Snowden, and the Tsarnaev bros, in Lifetime TV movies?

On June 29th, Lifetime will air a biopic, "Anna Nicole." We were recently forced to endure Lindsay Lohan as Liz Taylor in an epic bomb, "Liz & Dick." Thus, it seems inevitable that the left-dominated Hollywood will feel the overwhelming urge to bring the stories of Edward Snowden and the Tsarnaev brothers to the small, if not the big screens. So, while just now enjoying the spectacle of Tiger taking a triple bogey on the 2nd hole, I was wondering who they might cast in these roles?
Actually, I think that either of two of his first-name namesakes, Edward Norton or Edward Burns, would be perfect for the role. They both have that soft-spoken demeanor.
And if/when Lohan gets out of rehab, and escapes jail, she can audition for the girl friend role, with the obligatory visual on the pole.
The Tsarneavs are harder to cast. Mark Wahlberg is too old for the dead brother...and it's really playing outside the box..it could be a career-ender. Justin Timberlake has the scowl, but he'd have to buff up for the role
The younger brother, Dzhokar, is already somewhat of a cult-figure. But hey, serial-killers have groupies, and imprisoned gangsters are impregnating their correction officers, so anything's possible these days in Obama's America.
So, whoever takes on that challenging role will have to be in need of a career changer. So, how about ANOTHER Justin? Justin Bieber.
BTW..the upcoming Anna Nicole pic looks interesting, if only for the amazing job of converting "B cup" sized actress Agnes Bruckner to a "Double D." The New York Post has the story and pictures here
So, post your suggestions, and pictures...
The Everly Brothers are too old, the Jacksons are too colored, are the Hanson brothers available?
The “Dumb and Dumber” guys as the brothers and John what’s name “That’s the ticket” guy from SNL...he was actually funny.
Al Sharpton and Ed Schulz as the Tsarnaev brothers; Olberman as Snowden.
Snowden = Jay Carney. Muzzies = Alec / Daniel Baldwin
Obama should gain 40 pounds and play the older brother.
The younger brother will be played by Ezra Klein wearing a white baseball cap.
They already have a Jody Arias movie out. Whenever they make a movie about a true story, I research to see how much they went off script.
Senator Patrick Leahy as Snowden. Harry Reid and John McCain as the tsarnaev brothers and Nancy Pelosi as their mother. Eric Holder as director and obama as the soon to be impeached president (I can dream can’t I).
Then Edward Snowden will be played by Meredith Baxter...
LOL or Melissa Gilbert
Ryan Gosling - Eric Snowden
Jessica Biel - Lindsay Mills
David Krumholtz as Tamerlan Tsarnaev
Shia LaBeouf as Dzhokar Tsarnaev
Amanda Seyfried as Katherine Russell Tsarnaev
Kim Catrall as Zubeidat Tsarnaeva
Michael Peña as Saudi person of interest
Viggo Mortensen as Mr Tsarnaeva
Perdogg as Air Force Col
Kate Upton as Air Force Col wife
I forgot, Daniel Craig as Vladimir Putin
Snowden - Christian Bale
Tamerlan Tzarnaev - Tony Shaloub
Joker Tsarnaev - Justin Bieber
Mr. Tsarnaev - Baraq Ubamao (because, if he had a son, he’d look just like...)
I am impressed...but you should hold open audition’s for the USAF Col.’s wife..it’s a key role...and will have a torrid love scene...and everyone knows that compatibility between actors in a love scene is crucial..
Does Snowden get raped or have breast cancer?
He comes out as a transexual trapped in a man’s body, then converts to proud lesbianism.
Sounds good, as long as there is some serious man hating involved.
Corey and Trevor as the Tsarnaev bros?
The Tsarnaev story is set in Boston. The obvious choice is Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.
Or the Wahlberg brothers.
Snowden- Macauley Culkin
I don't believe she's available. But I think Helen Thomas is looking for work.
I see what you did there... will there be kissing scenes?
The Weasely, Boat-Hiding Little Brother:
All Jewish, just to stick it to the perpetually offended...
Whoever plays those roles, let’s nominate Groucho Marx and Lon Chaney, Jr. for the roles of Obama and the Mrs., respectively.
