Last week, the first trailer for the upcoming biopic Hitchcock arrived online, which sees Anthony Hopkins play the legendary director Alfred Hitchcock in a story that tracks his marriage to Alma Reville (played by Helen Mirren) as he put up his own money to make his classic thriller Psycho. From what is seen in the trailer, Hopkins turns in an inspired performance, one that made director Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! The Story of Anvil) remark: "I think he really found the role quite delicious."
However, as is often the case in Hollywood, it's not the only biopic of Hitchcock in the works. In fact, a month before Hitchcock opens in theaters, HBO will deliver The Girl, which sees British actor Toby Jones (Captain America: The First Avenger, Snow White and the Huntsman) play the legendary director as he enlists actress Tippi Hedren (played by Sienna Miller) for his follow-up to Psycho, The Birds. In light of two actors portraying the same person in a span of a month, we felt the question of "which Hitchcock could take the other" was obvious, and could only be settled in a Character Cage Match. compare the performances before you vote >>
