Ridley Scott’s new movie is based on the true story of the kidnapping of the grandson of the richest man in the world, J. Paul Getty. Problem was, the kidnappers didn’t realize that Getty was such an unbelievable skinflint that not only would he pay no money to said grandson’s family (they lived in poverty) but he wouldn’t pay the ransom either. Minimally, he just sent a handler (Mark Wahlberg) to assist his desperate daughter-in-law (Michelle Williams) but sans any kind of a real budget. What happened as this story unplayed was kinda crazy. Almost as crazy as the last minute digital replacement they did for Getty, inserting Christopher Plummer. Which we never really noticed the seams of. Listen to Chris, George and Frank talk about that and the movie in general right here.
