More for Jonah Hex

04.01.2009

A ravaged face, an evil John Malkovich and the wiles and curves of Megan Fox aren't the only things Josh Brolin will be contending with in JONAH HEX.

"ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT" smarm king Will Arnett and intense Oscar nominee Michael Shannon (REVOLUTIONARY ROAD, BUG) have joined the adaptation of the DC/Vertigo comic series about a hideosly scarred bounty hunter and his encounters with various weirdness in the Old West.

The movie finds the titular gunslinger dealing with Malkovich's voodoo practitioner and his plan to raise the dead to liberate the South. Arnett (in a rare serious role) will play a Union soldier fighting alongside Hex, while Shannon plays Doc Cross Williams, "the bizarre ringleader of a brutal gladiator circus event."

The movie starts shooting soon director Jimmy Hayward, an animation guy who came from Pixar and made HORTON HEARS A WHO.

This looks to be rounding out all simply great.

But am I the only dude on the planet right now that just thinks Megan Fox is just normally hot?...In my sick mind, yes I'd do plenty of naughty things to her, but she's not on the top of that list...

In no particular order...

These women all come to mind before she does, at least on my list.

I guess what puts Fox as "normally movie starlet hot" on my list is the nice little niche she fits as Hollywood's new it girl because she's getting super exposure.

Everywhere I read/look she's the next best thing since, well, the next best thing. That's exactly why I'm not falling all over her. She seems too replaceable as or right now.

There are so many below the radar hotties out there I feel can trump her.

Career wise, I believe Fox is a flash-in the-pan until she proves she's nothing more than the tattooed chick from Transformers that used to date, of all people Brian Austin Green.

Fa sho

Agree with the cast, but never saw what the big deal is about Megan Fox. Oh wait, she's hot. So, that automatically makes her a good actress. My mistake.

Whatever. Give me a damn break...

You misread part of the article. It stated that Michael Shannon was nominated for an Oscar and was also in the film Bug. The two are not connected. He was nominated for the other film (Revolutionary Road). Bug never received any attention from the Academy. Hope that makes you feel better.

Wow!

This is shaping up to be a must-see - almost like a dream cast, two great actors in Brolin and Malkovich - a rising star like Shannon (who was phenomenal in both Revolutionary Road and Shotgun Stories), one of the funniest guys on the planet in Arnett and the hottest thing on two legs in Fox. Can't Wait!

Michael Shannon is...

...definitely one of my favorite new actors on the scene. I thought Shotgun Stories was absolutely brilliant and most of that was because of Shannon's jaw-dropping performance. If you haven't seen it, try and seek it out (which is tough; I tried to buy it when it came out but couldn't find it at Best Buy, Circuit City, Target, FYE, Record and Tape Traders, Hollywood Video, or Blockbuster (the last two didn't even have it to rent, either)).

Joe R Lansdale

JoBlo needs to shout out some props to Joe R. Lansdale who wrote the comic this is based on, Jonah Hex: Two Gun Mojo. Give it a read. Arnett will NOT be playing a serious role. C'mon JoBlow Lansdale should be on your Nifty Fifty list or something.

The Cast

This cast is looking really really damn good. You have Josh Brolin, John Malkovich, Megan Fox, Will Arnett and Micheal Shannon?

Seriously, That Cast looks really fucking neat.

Shannon is a very good call

Ever since I saw Revolutionary Road I thought he would make a great serious comic book villain. Kind of wished he had wound up in a movie I was anticipating a little more, though. Don't get me wrong, I'll definitely go see Jonah Hex, and I'm sure Shannon will be great in it, but it would have been awesome to see him as say Bullseye in the Daredevil reboot or a future Batman villain.
