Michael Shannon has played more than a few nefarious types in his career, but none of them come close to Richard Kuklinski, aka "The Iceman." A vicious hitman with at least 100 corpses to his credit, he's all the more horrifying because Kuklinski was actually a real person. And 'The Iceman' is his story.
Check out the new trailer for the crime thriller after the break.
One of the best working actors these days is Michael Shannon (recently of 'Premium Rush'), because he always gives a committed performance, even if he's mostly asked to act a little off. He should be perfect for 'The Iceman,' the story of a real life assassin who was also a devoted father and husband.
Between his underrated performance in 'Take Shelter' and the scene-stealing one he dished out in 'The Runaways,' there's no denying that Michael Shannon is an acting force to be reckoned with (which Superman will soon find out as he stars as the villainous General Zod in 'Man of Steel'). So any fan of the actor would be giddy over 'The Iceman,' a thrilling crime drama based off real life of hitman Richard Kuklunski.
