Sharlto Copley Burrowed Into the Unabomber’s Soul to Play ‘Ted K,’ but Doesn’t Believe in Going Full Method

Click here to read the full article. Learning to skin a bunny, actor Sharlto Copley says, is “not pleasant.” Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and now living in Los Angeles, the longtime character actor considers himself a city dweller. Six-foot-tall and bearded, he has a gentle, mountain man–like presence, but Zooming out of his L.A. home in the hills, he’s a far cry from Ted Kaczynski, aka the Unabomber, whom he plays in the new film “Ted K.” For director Tony Stone’s imagining of the Harvard-educated math prodigy who ran afoul of civilized life to live off the land in the...

‘Ted K’ review: Sharlto Copley enters the mind of the Unabomber to mixed results

In Ted K, Sharlto Copley and Tony Stone don’t quite justify yet another film tackling the complex and horrifying life of the Unabomber. Despite the roughly 25,000 pages of diary entries and The Washington Post manifesto “Industrial Society and the Future,” Ted Kaczynski (A.K.A the Unabomber) remains a largely indecipherable figure. Two recent Netflix shows—the drama series Manhunt: Unabomber and docuseries Unabomber: In His Own Words—have attempted to shed light on the domestic terrorist’s life.

‘Ted K’ Red Band Trailer: Sharlto Copley Delivers A Terrorist Manifesto As The Unabomber

I think after District 9 we all expected to see a lot more from Sharlto Copley. That never really panned out. Sure, we’ve seen him in plenty of roles, usually supporting, but he didn’t become the leading man it seemed that he would. He’s become quite good at playing weirdos and nutballs, which bodes well for his starring role in Ted K, a biopic that goes inside the mind of the infamous Unabomber.

From the mind of acclaimed director and cinematographer (“Peter and the Farm,” “Severed Ways: The Norse Discovery of America”).
