my review) are lining up a more prestigious gig for their next gig - they are making a miniseries about the 1993 stand-off in Waco, Texas between David Koresh and his cult of Branch Davidians and the FBI, and it will star Taylor Kitsch as Koresh and Michael Shannon as the lead FBI negotiator. Koresh was a good-looking guy (you know how them cult leaders be) so I don't immediately scoff at casting pretty-boy Kitsch as him, but I'm not sure it's the right kind of pretty?
Anyway the series will be based on a pair of books, A Place Called Waco by a former member of the cult and Stalling for Time: My Life as an FBI Hostage Negotiator by the dude that Shannon is playing. It's weird that nobody's really taken on this subject before right? I mean besides Tim Daly, of course...
