The Killer Inside Me

Killer Inside Me The Onion's geeky offspring, the AV Club, is running a great interview with Casey Affleck today.  Affleck stars as Lou Ford, the murderous sheriff in Jim Thompson's brilliant The Killer Inside Me, in Michael Winterbottom's remake.

Affleck has matured into a really impressive actor.  His turn in The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is absolutely the best thing about an otherwise long, slow film.  I have high hopes for Killer, despite the fact that it rounds out its cast with the uninspired Jessica Alba and Kate Hudson - after all, the source material is extraordinary.

Fingers crossed.

(The moral of the story is, if you've never read The Killer Inside Me, it's time.)
