Wincott attacks Nixon

07.11.2003

Michael Wincott is one bad ass mofo! Besides having a voice that would make gravel jealous, and in my opinion, he's got presence like McQueen had cool! The gruff sounding, veteran actor, who is probably most notable for roles like Top Dollar in THE CROW, Guy of Gisborne in ROBIN HOOD: PRINCE OF THEIVES and Paul Rothchild in THE DOORS, has just signed on to co-star in Niels Mueller's indie flick THE ASSASSINATION OF RICHARD NIXON, with Sean Penn, Naomi Watts and Don Cheadle. Wincott will play the older brother of Penn's craracter Sam Byck, in the true story of a furniture salesman from Philadelphia (Penn), who devises a plan to kill Richard Nixon by hijacking a plane and crashing it into the White House, after his attempts at living the American dream fall short. Primarily typecast as the routine bad guy, Wincott has barely been given a chance to showcase his range of talent, evident in films like BASQUIAT, BEFORE NIGHT FALLS and DEAD MAN. Hopefully, with more small films like this, he will get the full recognition he rightfully deserves as a multi-talented actor, as opposed to just another guy who has the "menacing villain" role down-pat.
