CASTING FOR FUTURE PRESIDENTIAL FILMS

May 06, 2011: Barry Cauchon

Last month, Robert Redford’s feature film, The Conspirator was released in theaters across North America. Although many in the Lincoln Assassination Research community are quite pleased with the film, the one criticism that I’ve heard more than any other is that the actors did not resemble the characters they were hired to play.

So to have some fun with this, let’s play the game of Casting Agent. I’d like you to pick some historical characters from US history and cast an actor to play them in a future Presidential film. The actor can be living or dead but the only stipulation is that the actor has to look as much like the historical character as possible. Talent is not required.

Send your choices with pictures (of both the character and the actor) to my email at outreach@awesometalks.com.

I’ll start you off with a few choices of my own and post the best of your picks as they come in. Have fun.

Here are two historical characters that you can start casting for. Or chose your own historical character and cast the actor that looks most like them.

Best

Barry
