Vinnie Jones to play Balkan Warlord

VinnieJones.jpgCharisma is something you really need in the movies, and actors have it in many different ways, some not at all. Vinnie Jones has bags of it, and he can just breeze through a movie without saying a word, and steal the ending with the delivery of a simple line. Now don’t get me wrong, in no way am I saying he’s a great actor, he just has that bag of charisma and screen presence you really want, especially in a villain. A really, really evil villain.

So it’s perfect casting then when Ananova report that he has signed up to play the role of Balkan warlord Arkan in Hungarian director Laszlo Hege‘s film Filthy War. Indeed he is already listed in the IMDB cast list. The story says:

[Zeljko] Raznatovic, also known as Arkan, was the assassinated Serb paramilitary leader linked to massacres and ethnic cleansing during the Balkans conflict.

Hege told Croatian daily Vecernji List: “I like the way Vinnie Jones acts and he accepted the role of the notorious warlord Arkan with delight.”

I like Jones, and his acting is improved through the movies he’s been in, on the job training you could say. Not so sure about the movie myself. I don’t know how appealing another warlord tale could be.
