Just like George Zimmerman repeatedly getting arrested for pointing guns at people, I just don’t think disgraced cardiologist Conrad Murray ‘gets it’. Murray, 60, was released three weeks ago after serving time surrounding the death of the King of Pop after he injected the star with a fatal dose of the anesthetic Propofol.
Murray has been shopping around a screenplay about his disastrous relationship with Michael Jackson, and not surprisingly no one will bite. Conrad reportedly wanted Oscar winning actor Denzel Washington to portray him in the movie, but was met with a swift, “NO.”
I mean, come on!! You essentially killed the King of Pop, nobody likes you! Your reputation is nonexistent. You killed the beloved sequenced gloved one, nobody trusts you! Why do you think after getting released from jail you could not resume practicing medicine? You were giving Michael Jackson a surgical anesthetic in a home setting allegedly to help him sleep? No company wants to give a doctor with kind of judgment medical malpractice insurance. Who would want to portray you in a film or even back anything that you ever want to do for the rest of your natural life?
A Hollywood insider spoke about Denzel not wanting anything to do with the screenplay.
“He was friends with Michael and was deeply saddened by what happened.
“The thought of helping the man who killed him is preposterous.”
He added: “Murray is deluded if he thinks any Hollywood A-lister will be interested in working with him.
“He is presenting his tale as if he is the victim.”
Denzel would rather get shot up like the drugged out, thugged out rogue cop he portrayed in Training Day, but he definitely will never play Conrad Murray in a film. Denzel would rather get hit in the face with a trumpet like in Mo Better Blues before he plays Conrad Murray. I think Denzel would rather take that whipping in Glory than to play Conrad Murray.
Time will reveal if a brave actor will step up to the plate and play Conrad Murray in his screenplay, it seems that it would surely be career suicide.
Can you think of any other things Denzel would rather do than to portray Conrad Murray in his screenplay?
