Prepare yourself – The Coen Brothers are coming in hot with what I can only assume will be another fantastic film. This one has George Clooney, Josh Brolin, Jonah Hill, Tilda Swinton, Scarlet Johansson, Frances McDormand, and Channing Tatum, among many others. In the film, Brolin plays a real-life Hollywood fixer by the name of Eddie Mannix, who is tasked with finding a kidnapped movie star, played by Clooney.
If you’ve seen “Hollywoodland,” starring Ben Affleck, Adrien Brody, and Diane Lane, then you’ve seen a fixer before, in the form of Bob Hoskins (RIP), who also played Eddie Mannix. Some believe that Mannix played a part in the death of George Reeves. The crazy part is that no one will ever know for sure, because it was literally his job to cover up stuff like that.
If you’d like to know more, google “Hollywood Fixer.” You’ll find a wealth of interesting information.
