Talk about a FANTASTIC casting choice!

Anthony Hopkins is playing iconic filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock in the movie Hitchcock and the producers could not have picked a better actor for the role.

In the first glimpse of the movie, which started filming last Friday, we get to see the Silence of the Lambs star in full costume and his resemblance to the director is uncanny. Based on his previous work, we're sure his performance will be too!

The film tells the story behind the making of the director's horror classic, Psycho, and co-stars Ralph Macchio, Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel, and Helen Mirren.

Do U think this role might lead to Oscar number 2 for the 74-year-old actor?

    It is good casting because he is a good actor, but he does not look a thing like Hitchcock. Also that look has nothing to do with casting. It is all about make up.

    Re: tom
    Ditto: nothing like.
    However, in this get-up, Hopkins looks exactly like a fat Sir Corin Redgrave!

    Hopkins is a fantastic actor. He'll hit this role out of the park.

    i'm so excited! he's not the spitting image but he can pull it off with no doubt. i'm more nervous about scarlet johansson. i don't think she's a good actress and looks nothing like janet leigh. i was a little disappointed with that choice.

    I have no doubt that he'll be able to pull the role off, but they look NOTHING alike. You would have to be blind to think they even remotely resemble. IDENTICAL??? You are definitely smoking something, Perez.

    I'll see the movie! He was great, like many of my friends in high school, I could not shower for a week after watching Psycho. Geez.

    Re: ickynicky – Actors don't have to look like the person they're portraying. Why do you think that's a requirement? That's why they're actors … they act/portray/interpret the role. Look how many actors nailed these roles and didn't look anything like the person:
    Michelle Williams/Marilyn Monroe, Jim Carrey/Andy Kaufman, Russell Crowe/John Nash, Jamie Fox/Ray Charles, Will Smith/Muhammad Ali, Salma Hayek/Frida Kahlo, Philip Seymour Hoffman/Truman Capote, etc. The list goes on and on. Acting isn't about having a physical resemblance to the person - it's about being able to accuately characterize and portray the person.

    the key to Hitchcocks famous profile is to tilt you head up a bit- as if you ahve a slight air of superiority
    then look like you are smelling something foul!
    LOL
