Javier Bardem is out. Edgar Ramirez is in.
Not talking about Forbes’ upcoming Hottest Hispanic Actor List of 2009 – - but who’s going to be playing gun-toting powder-sniffer Pablo Escobar in Joe Carnahan’s upcoming “Killing Pablo”.
Bardem (“No Country for Old Men”), attached to the part for a while, sounds as if he’s got a bit too big for his boots. And they’re big boots. That’s just what I’m hearing. Whatever… he’s out. “Domino” star Ramirez is in. And I’m sure the latter will be laughing – to both the bank and the podium.
CHUD has the lowdown.
