    Deepwater Horizon is a catchy movie title

  • Frank

    Hilarious. And spot on.

    So glad someone noticed this besides me. The minute I saw Tony Hayward I noticed the striking resemblance to Michael Sheen. I would bet casting agents are already on the phone to Mr. Sheen :D

    Oh good lord! I thought Michael Sheen had it tough being basically typecast the “The Tony Blair Guy,” but yeah, he’s gonna have to play Hayward. And — depending on how much loner this goes on and how much worse it gets and, of course, the ecological and economic fallout we’ll only learn about over the next decade — there might be a lot of stories featuring this character. Bet Sheen’s not terribly glad about that, though.

    definitely Sheen but I also see a little bit of Stephen Moffat too.

  • Brie

    Ha! I thought the exact same thing.

    I should post my interview with Sheen from back when *The Damned United* opened here, in which we talked about how he likes playing real people.

    (Damned transcription of interviews is what always holds me up from posting them. Transcription is my least favorite thing to do ever — it’s even worse then ironing something with pleats.)
