Olyphant as Hitman pics

8 years agoby:
UPDATE: Fox is asking everyone to pull these pictures from their site, so we've removed ours from this story.

 Timothy Olyphant is currently and simultaneously living out every man’s ultimate dream and worst nightmare. He’s playing a powerful, professional assassin but he’s doing it completely bald. We’ve got our first look at Olyphant as Agent 47 in the upcoming videogame adaptation of HITMAN. To me Olyphant doesn’t look like the baddest of all asses, and I would’ve never pegged him as the kind if guy to go up against John McClane in the upcoming LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD, but it looks like the studios know something that I don’t. In all fairness to him, I’ve never watched DEADWOOD, but apparently he had the tough guy role down pat in that series. I’m not familiar with the HITMAN video game series either, but anytime someone nabs a role away from Vin Diesel (who was initially attached to the part) we’re all better off for it.

HITMAN centers on an assassin who suddenly finds himself hunted by Interpol and the Russian Military after a political takeover, but his biggest challenge yet may come from “a beautiful, damaged girl”, something many of us can relate to. There are two pictures, and the second one features the back of Olyphant’s head, complete with tattooed barcode, of which the assassin derives his name (the last two numbers are 47). The movie is slated for an October 12 release, and you can see the pictures HERE.

Extra Tidbit: Dougray Scott plays agent 47's adversary in the film. My guess he won't provide Olyphant with as much a challenge as Bruce Willis, which is why he'll most likely come out of this film unscathed and come out of DIE HARD 4 well, dead as shit.

He looks goofy, doesn't have the right eyes. Wouldn't have been my choice.

My boss should be in this

My boss looks just like the hitman character. They should have hired him. His head is already shaved and everything.

People, People

When are you going to quite judging the look of characters in films by various random snapshots with terrible lighting. I for one think Olyphant was a great choice for this role, he can play a bad ass mutha no problem with the best of them. But to tell the truth i believe a video game role is beneath his acting chops, he's better than that.

He doesn't look the part, and he doesn't sound it either. And the damaged girl subplot? WTF??? -Semi Spoiler for Non-Game Fans- 47 isn't even human! He's a clone! He has no emotion, just killing drive!

Anyway, it looks like a bad idea. Statham would have kicked total ass at this part.

Olyphant is tough

on Deadwood, but incredibly dull until he starts busting heads. Speaking of heads, one look that does not inspire much confidence in his toughness is the bald look.

The whole "damaged girl" thing makes this almost seem like The Professional in a way. I just can't see Agent 47 booming with personality either, also I can't even picture him talking to a human being without using some sort of violence.
