Too-too-too-too depressing: They cast that self-indulgent himbo Matthew McConaughey as Mickey Haller in The Lincoln Lawyer? I just consumed Michael Connelly’s latest Mickey Haller outing – The Reversal – in a day of frenzied reading, and no-one, but no-one would have persuaded me that the dreadfully self-aware McConaughey would make a good Mickey. For a start, surely there was absolutely no call in the script for him to remove his shirt, not even once. It’s like a casting disaster.
Anyway, it looks like an all star cast – is that Marisa Tomei as Maggie McFierce? – so maybe it’ll turn out swell?
