Michael C. Hall is hiding something dark inside – while Tracy Letts is openly intimidating — in The Hollywood Reporter’s exclusive first look at the actors in the newsroom of “Christine”. Directed by Antonio Campos, the drama is based on the true story of Christine Chubbuck, the depressed Florida newscaster who infamously shot herself on live television in 1974.
In the new promotional stills from the film, Michael C. Hall – playing a fellow local anchor George (based on Christine’s real-life crush George Peter Ryan) – seems like the typical all-American character, but he sits at the news desk unsettled. “Michael injects the character with this wonderful darkness and humor – I’d watch the monitor in a trance when Michael was on,” Campos told THR. “He was always doing something unexpected and coming up with a gesture or ad-libbing a line that would make me jump with joy or laugh out loud.” Click here for more exclusive photos.
“Christine” will make its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.
