Sir Anthony Hopkins will play Alfred Hitchcock!

This is freaking awesome. Anthony Hopkins will be taking on the role of Alfred Hitchcock in the biopic about what I consider one of the greatest directors / storytellers of all time. And he's already gearing up for it by perfecting Alfreds voice. Watch for yourself.

Alfred Hitchcock Presents, a drama about the making of Hitchcock's Psycho, and particularly the hurdles and roadblocks that the great British director went through in order to bring it come to fruition. Hitchcock was discouraged left and right from making it. The script was seen as way too dark and perverse (especially with the lead female star getting killed off after 45 minutes), and no one wanted to see a movie based more or less on the macabre exploits of serial killerEd Gein.

Helen Mirren is rumored to play Alma Reville, Hitchcocks wife.
