This is what Anthony Hopkins looks like as Alfred Hitchcock

While casting reports on Hitchcock—which is no longer called Alfred Hitchcock And The Making Of Psycho after everyone made fun of it—have thus far been distracted by ladies like Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel, and Helen Mirren, because of the sexy-times, the real make-it-or-break-it star of the film will indubitably be Anthony Hopkins, both because it is his performance as Hitchcock that will carry the weight of the story and because he is technically the “star.” His character’s name is right there in the title, after all. Anyway, speaking of carrying the weight, here’s the first glimpse of what Hopkins looks like in his Hitchcock makeup, posing in the iconic silhouette so familiar to viewers of Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Those jowls will surely make it difficult to chew the scenery, eh old sport? Eh? What a twist, and so forth.
