Damon Herriman playing Charles Manson in two projects?


Press Trust of India Los Angeles
Actor Damon Herriman, who is all set to play Charles Manson in Quentin Tarantino's next, is also portraying the same character in the second season of David Fincher's Netflix series "Mindhunter".
Two days ago, the 48-year-old actor, who had a recurring role on FX's "Justified", was roped in by Tarantino to play the cult leader of the quasi-commune Manson Family in his film "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood".
According to Collider, Fincher's "Mindhunter" has also picked up Herriman as their Charles Manson for its upcoming season.
However, neither Netflix nor anyone from Fincher's team have confirmed the news. But the report says it is a done deal.
It is also reported that Herriman has already filmed scenes as the serial killer for "Mindhunter" that follows two FBI agents who begin interviewing imprisoned murderers, which leads to the term "serial killer" being coined.
Tarantino's film, featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie in lead roles, is about the murder of Sharon Tate and others at hands of the Manson Family.
The story is set in Los Angeles in 1969 and follows Rick Dalton (DiCaprio), the former star of a Western TV series, and his longtime stunt double, Cliff Booth (Pitt), who are struggling to make it in Hollywood. Rick has a famous next-door neighbour: Sharon Tate (Robbie).
