Castro Dead; Neeson Lives On
The year 2016 just doesn't stop being crazy. Fidel Castro is dead. As someone who is not Cuban or Cuban-American I truly do not understand the magnitude on a personal level. I was not raised in nor did I live through the Cold War. Castro for me is known more as the reason Cuba is the villain in bad 80's action movies. Not to mention school never really touched on him because it was just recent enough that the school year ended. Anywho. Liam Neeson looks identical to the dictator. I mean like twins.
LOOK AT THAT. That twitter guy, who happens to be quite the follow, hit the nail on the head. Slap a spray tan on Neeson and he becomes Castro. People forget that before Neeson was crushing skulls with his particular set of skills he was, and still is, an extremely reputable actor. My man was Rhas Al-Ghul, the Lion in Narnia and Qui-gon Jin, but he was also Michael Collins in, fittingly, Michael Collins , a biopic on the titular character, an Irish revolutionary leader. He was also the lead in a little black and white film you may have heard of called Schindler's List . The way Hollywood is now it's all about reboots, remakes, big franchises and biopics. Now that Fidel is rotting away it's only a matter of time before they make a movie about him and why not have Neeson step in to those Communist shoes. The resemblance between he and Neeson is uncanny and boy would it be interesting to see an actor like Neeson play that character decades after playing Oskar Schindler. Interesting stuff.
Sidenote : Rumor has it this was the last person to see Castro before he passed. A short, stocky bald man who snorts when he laughs.
