Sean Penn Channels The Cure’s Robert Smith For ‘This Must Be The Place’

The Cure’s Robert Smith is a scary-looking dude. But Sean Penn AS Robert Smith? Whoa.

Technically, Penn isn’t playing Smith. But dlisted rightly notes the resemblance in the collection of set photos they’ve posted. I dropped one of the images below, alongside a closeup of the actual Smith. Click it to check out dlisted’s full gallery.

Wacky, right? The movie actually has nothing to do with The Cure. The Paolo Sorrentino written and directed film instead focuses on Penn’s aging rock star and his quest to locate his father’s killer, an ex-Nazi who is hiding out in the United States. It sort of just keeps getting better and better, right?
