John Wayne to be portrayed onscreen in “Trumbo”

David James Elliott, who starred in TV’s JAG, will play John Wayne in Trumbo, the biopic about blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo starring Bryan Cranston, and due out Nov. 6.

I’m going to go ahead and guess that it won’t be a sympathetic portrayal of the Duke, considering the film’s subject matter. Still, it’ll be interesting to see.

You can catch the Trumbo trailer (Duke-free, unfortunately) here.

Elliott as the Duke. They’ve got the look right, anyway.

    Very much looking forward to this movie. I think David James Elliott will nail this part! Trumbo will also premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sept 12.
