Two more actors have been added to the growing cast of Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho. Anthony Hopkins stars as the legendary director in this story of the troubled road to getting the seminal horror film made, and now Kurtwood Smith (That 70’s Show) and Wallace Langham (CSI) have joined the cast in two real-life roles. THR reports that Smith will play Geoffrey Shurlock, administrator of the Motion Picture Production Code, which was the precursor to the MPAA. Variety reports that Langham is set as Saul Bass, the renowned graphic designer who created the main titles for Psycho and many of Hitchcock’s following films.
Hitchcock ran up against fierce opposition from the Production Code on Psycho over such controversial aspects of the film as an unmarried couple sharing the same bed, the flushing of a toilet on camera, and a brief glimpse of bare buttocks (the horror!). Sacha Gervasi is onboard to direct the real-life story, with Helen Mirren, Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel, Toni Collette, and many more rounding out the stellar ensemble cast.
