These photos of Sean Penn in his upcoming movie This Must Be The Place are CRACKING ME UP!

Blurb about the movie, courtesy of IMDB:

Sean Penn is in talks to star in This Must Be The Place, a new film from Italian director Paolo Sorrentino (Il Divo). The story sees Penn play a wealthy, retired rock star - which shouldn't be too much of a stretch for the Oscar favorite. In the film, Penn's character becomes bored of his rock retirement and goes on a quest to find his father's executioner, an ex-Nazi war criminal who's hiding out in the US, apparently having lied on the immigration form where it asks visitors to the country if they were ever a member of the Nazi party between 1939 and 1945. Sorrentino wrote the script, which will be his English-language debut, along with Umberto Contarello.

Char said...

he looks rough man...rough

Melanie's Randomness said...

Soo I think he flipped. I know he played a mentally challenged man in I am Sam but this? He looks like that actress lady in Donnie Darko who is like, "I doubt your commitment to Sparkle Motion." hehe.

Shelley said...

he looks like an ugly old woman... gross.

SabinePsynopsis said...

... and I thought he was suffering from gender confusion.

thelayeredpancake said...

he does look scary, but apart from that, i think the script sounds a bit silly.

Tia said...

bahahahahaha!! He looks like a CRAZY person!!

Susan Erickson said...

he looks like a miserable sucker and that really doesn't work with the lipstick...I'll have to quit calling people, rock stars, if that 's the story....

Charlene said...

Does any one else think he has an amazing resemblance to Alice Cooper?

Caroline said...

Well, you know it's going to be a goooood movie!

Shorty said...

Before I read your post underneath the pics I thought he was dressed as Robert Smith from the Cure back in the 90's!

Rita/Fighting Off Frumpy said...

He looks like someone's grandma. Who refuses to age gracefully.

Dancing Branflake said...

Uhh... I thought he was a woman at first. Oops!

Christiejolu said...

Farah said...

"...which will be his English-language debut..."
say no more. O dear.

Do we need our meds adjusted, Seanny P? *heh* he sure makes a bitter-looking old queen, eh?

diane said...

It's no surprise that Paolo Sorrentino was awarded the Nastro D'Argento. Keep your eyes on this young director, he's going to "wow" audiences with his gritty film style. Sean Penn's appearance in the film looks just as honest and gritty: showing the unflattering side of an aging rock star, who decides to do something for the honor of his father, perhaps partially as an attempt to redeem himself from a life of excess & abuse.

(∂_∂)
he looks umm ...
interesting.

Ebony said...

He looks like a thinner Mrs. Doubtfire in the second photo.

bananas. said...

okay really how the hell do you take him sseriously when he looks like THAT?! i read the movie description and it sounds pretty interesting and somewhat intense, however i have a feeling the audience will be laughing more than paying attention.

sssdawna said...

girlunwinding said...

adrienzgirl said...

Not a great look for Mr. Penn. He looks like a tranny.

Kitty Stampede said...

BAHAHAHAHA! Ewwwwww......

Kathryn said...

Still better looking that Ric O'Casek (not that that is saying much) and wearing less makeup than his ex-wife (Madonna).

Strange story line but Penn is talented enough to sell it - should be an interesting flick!

Missy said...

He looks like my ex mother-in-law.

Brown Girl said...

Oh shit, Missy's comment, that's funny!!!

But honestly, ewww!

Katie said...

oh wow. someone locked himself in a dark room and listend to the cure for days.

Gorilla Bananas said...

Hey, stop dissing him! I've seen far uglier tranny hookers in Brazzaville.

Every Little Counts said...

holy shit. he looks a little like robert smith from the cure.

Vivienne said...

Is the Nazi-hunting rock star Robert Smith....?

...love Maegan said...

Mel Gibson?

tulpen said...

frenchie said...

Christina In Wonderland said...

He kind of reminds me of Robin Williams's Cuban chick look in Mrs. Doubtfire... :/

chloe said...

oh wow, i thought the cure meets edward scissorhands too!

Adiya said...

Haha! My first thought was "what ugly woman is this??!!"

But really? A nazi finding retired rock star? I don't think so!

Thanks so much for wishing my baby sis happy birthday! :D

only a movie said...

Did a double take for Robert Smith, but I love the Mrs. Doubtfire comment!!

Phoenix said...

Awesome. I love, love, love Sean Penn simply for this - doing roles that no one else would be able to carry off. His fearlessness is so freakin' inspiring.

vint junky said...

I love Sean, but he should definitely steer clear of the lippy, he looks like a disapproving shrew...

Diana said...
