Eh? What about Michael Massee..
Nah, I don't see it. This is a nice guy, nothing menacing about him.

Don't frak up now Webb. I'm warming up to your MJ but don't push your luck pal.
Wow! Great news! He is definitely giving off Norman vibes. There have been a few different names thrown out as to who is going to be Norman, I'm glad they've finaly found someone! I don't know him but he looks very critcally aclaimed as far as his work.

I think that was just for that scene....
Cooper can be plenty menacing. He's also a fantastic actor.

If this comes to pass it will be a great choice. :up:
either way you look at it, least now we know norman will be in the film
How do you guys not know Chris Cooper? Never seen The Bourne Identity? American Beauty? October Sky? The Patriot? The man's an incredible actor. He's been in a lot of major films.
Yeah, I can definitely see this guy being good. I can only really remember seeing him in the Bourne movie.
Wow....thought Masse would've been great, but I can totally get on board with this too :)
So, who is Colm Feore playing then??
Am I the only one who thinks Cooper looks way too old for the part?? I'm NOT excited about these news!
This movie has a ****ing amazing cast. Now let's hope it's actually good.
Awesome casting, Cooper is great. This movie is getting more and more intriguing by the minute. I love how big it seems.

What are you talking about? Not menacing?
Cooper plays cold and menacing so well. When I saw October Sky as a kid he scared the %$^# out of me.
I can't get over what an awesome cast they have. Two Oscar winners for the main villains, and Paul Giamatti (Oscar nominated) not too shabby either!

"Now Mr. Dillon, I would hate for a disagreement to become a dispute.. And I would certainly hate for a dispute to lead to.. Unnecessary complications."
I mostly know him from nice guy roles. But I suppose he might pull it off. But I really wanted a conniving MF. Wilem Dafoe was really good.
