Norton vs. Norton

11.17.2008
100%

As with Stephen Colbert and his "Formidable Opponent" segment, when Ed Norton surveyed the current acting landscape to see who could challenge him as his brother in writer/director (and fantastic character actor in his own right) Tim Blake Nelson's upcoming dramedy LEAVES OF GRASS, he found that the only person capable enough was…himself. Well, not really. He just plays an ivy league professor who returns to his hometown in Oklahoma to find that his twin brother, a local pot dealer, is in the midst of a scheme to take down a drug lord (Richard Dreyfuss). Keri Russell and Susan Sarandon co-star. No release date is set as yet. Click for mega bigness.

Just recently read about this flick in Entertainment Weekly where it was described as a "comedic thriller". If having a double dose of Ed Norton hadn't already sold me, that description sure the hell did.

While I don't know what to think of a pot dealer (probably small-time) taking on a drug lord in the form of Richard Dreyfus, I do like the idea of Norton playing against himself. It doesn't hurt that many of his characters either undergo huge changes (American History X) or are indeed more than one person (Primal Fear, Fight Club, The Incredible Hulk).

Epic.

Based off the premise, the cast, the director, and the picture above this movie will be epic. Ed Norton is an amazing, versatile actor and will probably give one or should I say two of his best performances in this movie.

And yes, seeing Norton as a drug/pot dealer will be hilarious.
