Damon Herriman Will Play Charles Manson In Two Separate Projects

Published

on

When it comes to casting for an iconic role, you want the best person for the job. When you finally have that great person, you celebrate with the crew. Well, what happens when another studio already booked the same person for the same part?

A Hollywood Tragedy

Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood deals with the Manson Family murders of 1969. In order to tell this story, the iconic director would need the perfect Charles Manson. Fortunately, he found one in Damon Herriman.

HBO Entertainment

The Australian actor is best known for his performances in JustifiedSecret City, and INXS: Never Tear Us Apart.

Join The Hunt

Unfortunately, Herriman was already booked to portray Manson in season two of Mindhunter. This season will follow the tragedy of the Atlanta Child Murders.

Warner Bros

The actor reportedly already shot his scenes over the summer. Based on the show’s timeline, this will feature Manson already serving time in jail. The next season of Mindhunter is slated to be released next year. With Once Upon a Time in Hollywood dropping on July 26, there’s no word on which Manson performance will be released first.

Love For The Role

This isn’t the first time that an actor has played the same character more than once in different projects. Ian Hart played John Lennon in 1991’s The Hours and Times and 1994’s Backbeat. Aside from films, Hart has played the iconic musician in three stage productions. Michael Sheard has portrayed Adolf Hitler in five different movies, including Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Michael Sheard also portrayed Heinrich Himmler in three films, including The Bunker.

CBS

This could be Herriman scratching the itch of wanting to portray the notorious killer. If both productions go over well, he could very well follow Hart and Shread’s path.
