Shannon is a Runaway

Jun. 1, 2009by: James Thoo

Recent Oscar nominee Michael Shannon is in negotiations to star in THE RUNAWAYS, the movie about Joan Jett's seminal 1970s rock band. Kirsten Stewart will be playing Jett and Dakota Fanning will play bandmate Cherie Curry. There's no word about what role it is Shannon will be playing, but its a safe bet that it's someone with a serious mental imbalance. That guy looks insane. REVOLUTIONARY ROAD was his break out role, but he was pretty damn good in BUG before that.

Michael Shannon scares me in the way that the Candyman scares me. I'm pretty sure he's nowhere near London right now, but all the same I don't want to say his name too many times in case his super sinister esp picks it up. He's got that deranged serial killer look that William Mapother has. Actually, you know what, this guy is awesome. Love Michael Shannon. Love him. Best actor ever.

I guess he's OK

The best damn character actor working today. I cannot say enough great things about him. He owns his scenes.

I always thought of him as the dumb redneck character. I thought he was good in World Trade Center and Before the Devil Knows your Dead.

Actually JohnLocke 2342, his name was Gooze in Pearl Harbor

Cool

This guy should be in way more movies.

Shotgun Stories is a lesser known Shannon movie...pretty intense and overall really good movie.

His 34 minutes of screen time in Pearl Harbor was the only thing I actually got a kick out of. Goose was my favorite character in that hell hole of a movie.

I know Michael Shannon is already going to be in Jonah Hex but he'd make one awesome Bullseye in the Daredevil reboot.

And bonoferox, I too thought this would be about the comic, although according to a May 20008 Hollywood reporter article, a film version is indeed in the works.

Good

His bit in World Trade Center was one of the more tolerable things about the movie.
