Anthony Hopkins Nearly Unrecognizable as Alfred Hitchcock — PHOTO

ALTAnthony Hopkins is best-known for playing Hannibal Lecter, but he’s tackling Psycho in a different way for his latest role. Hopkins plays the title role in Hitchcock, and the first photo of the Oscar-winner in costume as Alfred Hitchcock is as uncanny as anything in the director’s films.

The movie, which covers the making of the 1960 film Psycho, started filming last week (appropriately, on Friday the 13th). Hopkins will be joined by Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh and Jessica Biel as actress Vera Miles.
