- PARKER THE BALD VS THE BALD
Michael Chiklis has just been cast to play against Jason Statham in crime thriller Parker. The Bald VS the Bald!!!
Taylor Hackford is directing the movie based on Donald E Westlake’s novel series. It’ll find The Stath as the titular crook, a man known for his cunning and guile and occasional reliance on violence. But he’s also an honourable type who only steals from those who can afford it.
While Jennifer Lopez is still floating in talks to play the female lead, Chiklis needed no long negotiation and has snapped up the role of the hard-nut bad guy who crosses Parker.
Hackford aims to get to work this August in New Orleans.
Chiklis, who us probably best known to cinema audiences for his role as Ben Grimm in the Fantastic Four movies, is a veteran of cop drama The Shield and recently tried a return to TV with superhero drama No Ordinary Family.
