Michael Shannon VS. Mickey Rourke: Who Will Make a Better ICEMAN?
This puts Shannon's Iceman way ahead of Rourke's - as there is no director assigned to the latter's film, which features the hefty title The Iceman: Confessions of a Mafia Contract Killer. Also, Shannon's role as Nelson Van Alden on HBO's acclaimed Boardwalk Empire should help propel the film. Not to mention, just think about it, which actor would be a more terrifying, ruthless killer: the soft-spoken, dagger-eyed Shannon or the Hulk-like, surgically enhanced Rourke? My vote goes to Shannon, who recently played a seemingly motive-less killer in last year's My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done? I'd constantly shit my pants if Shannon lived on my block.
