Bruce Campbell is the obvious choice!
Not missing the point. For an actor to be able to flip flop he must be talented.
I think @airnaut's comment was a double-entendre: that there aren't
many talented Mormon actors for they deny the feelings that make an actor
complex, and Aaron is the real deal and could portray the Mormon culture more
truthful than a non Mormon. There's one other talent with proven chops,
Ryan Gosling, who consequently smokes; it gets boring on set and the crafty food
cart very tempting. Neither fits the look anyway. @Hutterite offers
a more sensible suggestion.
LValfreCHICAGO, ILWhatever -- You're missing
the point.They just need to get someone who can Flip-Flop, and play
multiple personalities.Thanks all.
We so need to marginalise religion out of our political discussion. It's
the part most likely to be fabricated, anyway.
@L Valfre once a Mormon, always a Mormon. If one is an American and leaves the
country out of spite, or convenience, is she still not American? Are Jews not
always Jews? Aaron Ekhart is a former Mormon actor, but having learned the
doctrine his whole life is nothing less than a Mormon product. Neil LaBute
converted in college likely for the love and requests of a BYU Mormon girl.
LaBute sees the true darkness in the human soul, Mormons and non alike. He
prefers to explore that nature. His productions are only "unfriendly"
because it's church policy to turn a blind eye to the darkness in the
soul--be in the pursuit of only things worthy. Noble and hypocritical. Ekhart
likely left for he lost his faith, or developed another.
Turns out Aaron Eckhart has done around 4 films directed and/or written by
fellow BYU alumnus Neil LaBute which aren't exactly LDS friendly ... in
fact they may even be considered anti-LDS videos.
@airnaut"May I suggest a good Mormon actor -- Aaron
EckhartHe played Harvey Dent the handsome District
Attorney/Politician turned villian "Two-Face" in Batman, the Dark
Kinght."Actually he's not a Mormon and hasn't been for
a long time. A quote from regarding his Mormon faith, he revealed: "I'm
sure people think I'm a Mormon, but I don't know that I'm a
Mormon anymore, you know? To be honest, to be perfectly clear, I'd be a
hypocrite if I did say that I was, just because I haven't lived that
lifestyle for so many years."Have you seen his other movies such
as "Thank you for smoking"?
The actor of choice will have to play several Mitt Romneys. A challenging role
to say the least.
Bluto and Patriot are free to feel however they like about Romney, Obama, the
press and anything else, but complaining about something that doesn't even
exist yet is just whining. Even if they hate the final production, no one is
going to force them to watch it.
It has to be Guy Smiley.
John Travolta played Bill Clinton in Primary Colors. I say give him a shot at
the Romney role.
re:WonderYou don't think the progressive left hates the LDS
Church? Where were you the past year ? These haters want nothing more than to
bark out their propaganda and good ole Mormon Mitt makes the perfect target.
Recall Hollywood's attack against the LDS church over prop 8? These people
HATE any organization that stands for Christian principles.
@WonderDid you watch msnbc during the election?The authors of
Game Change are big time liberal democratic activists.It's not a
persecution complex, it's merely pointing out the facts of what is coming
and what to expect, and it's also about time that you retire, that tired,
old worn out cliche.Ask Sarah Palin how fair these guys were to
her?You need to wake up and realize that the Hollywood left and Main
Street Media, Never Rests!They will continue to bash Mitt Romney every
time he speaks, shows his face or breathes.He was correct with his
policies and would have saved this Nation's Economy.Now, we'll
all need to learn to tread water for 4 more years, while Obama gets his daily
pass from the media.Romney's ideas still threaten the leftists,
which are destroying this country, day by day by day.
Most likely it will be a multi-dimensional actor, who has been very successful
in playing very different kinds of personalities over many years.
Jim Backus would be the logical choice but not sure how he's looking these
@patriot -- Just because someone disagreed with Romney doesn't mean they
hate the Mormon church. Stop tying the two together. Romney isn't the
church. And why the persecution complex? It's unbecoming.
May I suggest a good Mormon actor -- Aaron EckhartHe

A left wing, Anti- Mormon bigot, to be sure.
Let me guess who the producers are - Bill Maher and Michael Moore?? Yes yes
I'm just certain HBO will produce a fair and balanced depiction of Romney
and the Mormon church. At the end of the mini series Romney will be shown to be
a child molester that also secretly shuts down rest homes and tortures old folks
and the Mormon church will be run by the Nazi party. The progressive Hollywood
garbage in this country never changes.
