Don’t casting directors give rip whether two men look a wee bit alike if playing brothers anymore?

In the movie Johnny wears a lot of makeup to make him look like Bulger, no doubt they can do the same with Cumberbatch, and Benedict is such a good actor so it will be interesting. Ben looks great in those pictures.

I see. Well, I agree they’re both fine actors indeed.
I hope Johnny does better with this than he’s been doing with his latest string of films which haven’t fared well in theaters.
Just did a quick Google of the guy. It looks like an interesting story.

OK, tried to report a spammer but got kicked off – might have clicked too fast,
On topic, just curious who wants to see a movie about this guy? Didn’t he get caught until he was about 70 or so? And was retired.

Ben is simply the best & most talented actor around these days. I agree he is not handsome but by God he IS sexy as hell!!

I use to be a fan, but he is terribly over exposed at the moment. He is still on my list of actors that I look out for, but nothing else. It will be interesting to see how Depp and Cumberbatch cope with the Boston accent, movie history is littered with spectacular failures from some otherwise excellent actors.


True, very true … the accent is not an easy one.

I would like to see this film. I do like both actors.
