Trust me… You’re going to be hearing a lot about Michael Shannon in the next couple of years. I know, it’s a long period of Michael Shannon, but along with him there will be some awesome projects that you need to know about. And see of course.

Sure, just this February he was nominated for his second Academy award (for best supporting actor in Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals) but there are a bunch of great movie and TV projects with Michael that are just around the corner. And I can hardly wait to be honest, because Ive been a fan of his work and talent for so long.

And what are those projects you ask? Well, other than being a villain (shocking isn’t it ahaha) in Guillermo del Toro’s Cannes winner- The Shape Of Water and portraying the famed entrepreneur /engineer George Westinghouse in the upcoming biopic, The Current War…. You’ll be seeing a lot of Michael on the small screen too.

He’s one of the leads in Waco, The paramount network’s 6 part mini-series based on the 1993 siege in Waco Texas. Besides starring in Waco, Michael serves as one of the executive producers of the miniseries…. but you know what? Let me break them down you one by one.
