Well gentlemen. Let me chime in here by saying that for years most of the world has been waiting for a movie about Vladimir Putin. We wondered who could play him. The answer is that the perfect actor has been found: Matthias Schoenaerts is a dead ringer for the leader of the free world.
There is no denying the resemblance. Look again. He could play young Vladimir.
Schoenaerts is actually going to start in “Kursk”, a EuropaCorp movie that was originally supposed to feature Putin, but his role was axed and Schoenaerts is playing someone else in that movie anyway.
