FReeper casting call: Who will play Edward Snowden, and the Tsarnaev bros, in Lifetime TV movies?
one man's opinion...

Posted on 06/16/2013 10:03:43 AM PDT by ken5050

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?


TOPICS: Chit/Chat; TV/Movies
KEYWORDS: partisanmediashill; partisanmediashills
Watching interminable videos of NSA leaker Edward Snowden, you just know that a film of his life story will happen, especially since he has (had?) a pole dancer for a his long-time girl friend.

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...

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).

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..

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.

The Tsarnaev story is set in Boston. The obvious choice is Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.

I don't believe she's available. But I think Helen Thomas is looking for work.

Whoever plays those roles, let’s nominate Groucho Marx and Lon Chaney, Jr. for the roles of Obama and the Mrs., respectively.
