A few days ago we reported that “Justified” actor Damon Herriman has been cast as the infamous cult leader Charles Manson in Quinton Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which will open in theaters on August 9, 2019.
Today we have learned that Herriman has also been cast for season two of Netflix’s hit series “Mindhunter” as…Charles Manson. What’s more, he’s already filmed his scenes for the serial killer series.
Manson won’t be the only infamous name you’ll recognize. Word is that this season we’ll meet David Berkowitz “The Son of Sam” who has a body count of eight as well as Elmer Wayne Henley who is known for the Houston Mass Murders that took the lives of over 28 young men and boys. The team will also grill Dennis Rader, who you may know as the “BTK Killer”, played by Sonny Valicenti. The agents will also meet star wannabe turned killer Paul Bateson, a background actor who starred in The Exorcist, who targeted the LGBTQ community between 1977 and 1978. Wayne Williams will also be featured. He’s known for the murder of 28 African American children in the Atlanta area but was only convicted of two and sentenced to two life terms.
Herriman must be impressive as hell as the Manson Family leader to be cast in the same role in two different projects at the same time. We can’t wait to see him in action for ourselves.
