Rumor: Hugo Weaving is Red Skull?
Veteran chameleon Hugo Weaving is reportedly in final talks to play Red Skull in the Captain America movie. According to The Hollywood Reporter:
The dealmaking with Weaving is in a delicate stage that will play out in the next day or so. Agencies grouse that Marvel plays hardball in the negotiating process and also demands multi-movie commitments, though the latter usually applies to actors playing its heroes.
In addition to his ability to look and sound wildly different from film to film, Weaving is also a really good actor; capable of taking flamboyant, manic characters and imbuing them with a deadly seriousness and subtle emotion. Even, we might add, if he can’t use his face.
Yes, this was the creepiest picture of Hugo Weaving that I could find, why do you ask?
