“I’m going to announce that I’m playing the role of Joe Biden in the upcoming film ‘My Son Hunter,’” the 65-year-old shared in a video. “I am especially excited to be working with a wonderful actor, Laurence Fox, who’s going to be playing my son, 猎人. We have some interesting scenes together.”
“The script has it all,” James continued. “钱, 力量, greed, 性别, drugs and alcohol. That kind of reminds me of ‘Dynasty.’ Anyway, I hope you get a chance to watch our movie. I know you’ll enjoy it.”
In September of this year, it was announced that actor Laurence Fox would play Hunter in the film, The Guardian 已报告. 根据出口, the script is the debut fiction attempt from married Irish documentarians Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer. Robert Davi of “License to Kill” 和 “The Goonies” will serve as director.
“我的儿子猎人” will explore Hunter’s “dodgy business dealings, party/strip club lifestyle and addiction struggles,” noted a press release sent to Fox News.
“Joe Biden is a complex character,” said McAleer. “At times he mumbles and stumbles but he also is one the longest serving politicians in Washington who has become very wealthy during his time in public service. John is the perfect actor to portray that complexity.”
McAleer said “我的儿子猎人” 将 “‘Austin Powers’ meets ‘King Lear’ meets ‘House of Cards.’”
“Joe and Hunter have this strange King Lear style relationship,” 他声称. “Hunter can never live up to his fathers’ expectations. And although Joe loves Hunter, he sees him both as an addict who needs help and a business opportunity to be exploited. This conflict is what makes for the great drama.”
今年四月, Hunter’s 回忆录, 标题 “漂亮的东西,” 被释放. It centered on the 51-year-old’s well-publicized struggles with substance abuse.
Shooting for “我的儿子猎人” begins in Serbia this week.
