WATCH: Kristen Wiig and Jane Fonda Channel Hannibal Lecter for ‘W’ Magazine
This video will totally give you the willies!
First of all, W magazine’s Casting Call videos are incredible. The publication has famous actors and actresses try their hands at some of film history’s greatest scenes. And their latest clip might just be the best one yet!
Kristen Wiig, Jane Fonda, Mya Taylor, Carey Mulligan and Greta Gerwig all take a stab (pun intended) at a scene from the Oscar-winning film, The Silence of the Lambs, featuring a monologue from the terrifying Hannibal Lecter (famously played to perfection by Anthony Hopkins).
Wiig totally commits to the reading, though she gives the whole affair her signature brand of comedy. Inversely Fonda embraces the character, intoning disgust and malice with each line.
Unfortunately Gerwig, Mulligan and Taylor either don’t commit or simply aren’t given enough screen time in the clip.
What do you think? Creepy or hilarious?
