The Sound of Facing the Music

The Sound of Facing the Music

Showtime is making a movie about the Scandal and has cast Christopher Plummer in the role of Cardinal Law.

Plummer may be most famous for playing the good Captain Von Trapp in “The Sound of Music,” but perhaps they expect him to draw more on the character of the Shakespeare-spouting Klingon from Star Trek VI in this role.

Plummer will bring “authority, humanity, and an appropriately chilling detachment” to the part, Robert Greenblatt, Showtime Networks’ entertainment president, said in a statement Tuesday.

Oh boy, I can’t imagine what a hatchet job this will be.
