Michael McKean’s Chewed Up Arm In Today’s Daily TwitPic

I’ll warn you now, today’s Daily TwitPic is hard to look at. It’s obviously not real, but special effects folks are doing incredible things with latex and makeup these days.

What I can’t figure out is where this photo comes from. I initially saw it and thought, “Huh, I didn’t know Michael McKean had a ’Piranha 3D” cameo.” That’s because he didn’t have one. But the state of his arm in the image after the jump could certainly have come from that set. Nasty stuff.

All McKean has coming up right now is “City of Shoulders and Noses,” the synopsis for which reads as follows: The son of a renowned sculptor and a beautiful Italian heiress must endure the deranged behavior of his stepmother, while his friends help him unlock the thirty year-old mystery of his parents’ murders in New Haven, Connecticut. Doesn’t sound super-gory, right? It’s also in pre-production. Bring your guesses here to the comments section. And seriously– if you’re squeamish about gore, even fake gore, think twice before hitting the jump.
