Here's an early look at Mickey Rourke and Megan Fox in 'Passion Play'. Looks like exactly the kind of role Rourke brings to life effortlessly, and Fox seems to be a natural here. I can already feel it.
What's surprises me is Bill Murray is also in this cast. Now, the presence of Rourke (as a down on his luck jazz trumpet player), and Fox, is reason enough to see this one. But, the addition of Murray?! Huh? Are you kidding? And, word is Murray plays a cut-throat gangster...? Bill Murray as a...gangster? Not a comedic version of a bad guy, but a hardcore violent ruthless thug? I have to see that.
Okay. It's official, then. That combo of these actors playing those characters makes 'Passion Play' a must-see.
And, get this. Wondering how first-time director Mitch Glazer got Bill Murray onto his project? Turns out Glazer had a bit part(s) in 'Scrooged'. He is listed as having played 'Guests'.
Way to go, dude. Hats off. Looking forward to it.
