Just in time for Halloween:
Hospital Panel OKs Face Transplants
The horror movie based on this pretty much writes itself: good person gets evil face, goes on a killing spree, ends up getting de-faced in some ironic way. The only question is, who do we cast in the lead? Christopher Walken and Dennis Hopper are getting too old for this sort of thing; who’s gonna represent for the next generation of movie psychos? I think Rainn Wilson, who plays Dwight on The Office, could do very well. He’s already pretty creepy as Dwight—all he needs to do is be a little less funny and, presto chango, it’s Tony Perkins time. Cillian Murphy proved himself extremely disturbing as the Scarecrow in Batman Begins. It might be fun to see Zach Braff take a shot at playing a villain. I dunno…your thoughts?
I think Eileen Brennan could pull this off. As it were.
Also, the actor who played Casper the Friendly Ghost in those cartoons. What was his name? Oh yeah — Casper the Friendly Ghost.
