Is Tig Notaro the new Christopher Plummer? That's the world that Twitter wants to live in. Four years ago, Plummer famously re-shot Kevin Spacey's role in Ridley Scott's 2017 drama, All the Money in the World, after the American Beauty star's very public fall from grace following accusations of sexual misconduct. (The veteran actor later received an Oscar nomination for his performance, which was one of his last live action roles before his death last year.)
Now, Notaro performs a similar service for Zack Snyder's new zombie heist extravaganza, Army of the Dead, re-shooting a role that was originally played by comedian Chris D'Elia, who faces multiple accusations of sexual harassment. (The performer has denied the allegations.) Not long after the news about D'Elia broke, Snyder reached out to Notaro to take over the part of badass helicopter pilot, Marianne Peters, who helps a team of mercenaries rob a casino's safe in the middle of a zombie-populated Sin City.
