    Charles Manson in Netflix’s “Mindhunter” season 2, according to
  • The Wrap reported this week that Herriman is also
    playing Manson in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in
  • “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” takes place in the
    1960s, while “Mindhunter” will take place in the 80s.


Talk about typecasting — the same actor will reportedly play cult
leader and murderer Charles Manson in two upcoming projects.

Australian actor Damon Herriman will play Manson in the
second season of Netlix’s “Mindhunter,” according to Collider. And TheWrap reported on
Tuesday that Herriman was also cast as Manson in Quentin
Tarantino’s next film, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”

Netflix did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The former would take place in the 1980s, when Manson is already
locked away, while the latter will take place in the 1960s.
“Mindhunter” follows two FBI agents who begin interviewing
imprisoned murderers, which leads to the term “serial killer”
being coined. “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is about the murder
of Sharon Tate, played by Margot Robbie, by the Manson Family.

Sources told Collider that Herriman already shot his scenes for
“Mindhunter” in July. Herriman played a role in “Top of the Lake:
China Girl” last year and has been filming the thriller “The
Nightingale,” from “The Babadook” director Jennifer Kent. He also
appeared in FX’s “Justified.”

“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” comes to theaters July 26, 2019.
“Mindhunter” season 2 does not have a release date yet.
