lurkerturnedposter: I’m always excited to see Goggins getting more roles ever since I saw him in Justified. I don’t think I’ve disliked any role I’ve seen him in so far.

jmounteney44: Richard Gere looks like Ian Mckellen here

MarkRedler: I really enjoy seeing Dinklage get roles that have little or nothing to do with his height. He’s such a good actor, really deserves it.

Scopejack: I’m always a little dubious when I hear “from the producer of” in promo material.

zwingo: God I love Walton Goggins. I’ve been defending him to my friends group for an insanely long time as an underrated and heavily ignored actor. His work on “the shield” and “Sons of Anarchy” is what first made me notice, but seeing him in “Django Unchained” and “Vice Principals” was when I really cemented that opinion.

astrakhan42: [The Dollop episode](http://thedollop.net/wp/episode-93-smollop/) about the Three Christs of Ypsilanti is worth a listen. The doctor really went past the boundaries of acceptable medical practice.

TheKingOfSiam: Richard Gere is finally old. That took forever.

The_Real_Roberts: Jesus Christs, when did Richard Gere get so old?

TreadEverSoLightly: Just attended a private screening at TIFF (Scotia Theatre 4, 11:30am).

I enjoyed the film. Can post more details if there is interest.

bankholdup5: I worked on this movie for a few days! I think it’s gonna be good!

mattcolville: It works, mate! The fat one balances out the two skinny ones!

407dollars: I’ll watch anything with Goggins. Dudes a fucking dynamo.

ajh6288: Jon Avnet has produced some great things and he has directed some of the worst movies I have ever seen. No thank you.

StevenZissouniverse: Oh man I was upset when I saw this was coming out, I live by Ypsilanti where the true events actually happened and one of my Psych professors taught all of his classes about this study and it struck me so much I actually wrote up a script for a comedy based off the book but I kept telling myself “Noone wants to see a comedy about messiah complexes and mental illness” but damn I was wrong

Jon_Angle: Walton Goggins is an under rated actor. He is a brilliant drama actor as well as comic.

icefourthirtythree: Unrelated, but last year I wrote a script based on this story.

BallisticBurrito: Walton Goggins AND Dinklage? I’m sold.

nnelson2330: Walton Goggins is so criminally underrated, especially when he’s not being type cast as “southern tough guy”. His role as Venus Van Dam on Sons of Anarchy was especially complex on a show that wasn’t exactly known for its deep characters, and it all started as a joke.

Humbertohh: Is this an adaptation of [die Physiker](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Physicists)?
