Which Actor Should Play Oscar Pistorius?

Oscar Pistorius R and his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp

While Charlize Theron would appear to be the front runner to play Reeva Steenkamp in the inevitable Oscar Pistorious biopic, the competition to play the Blade Gunner is, much like Oscar’s innocence, more open to debate.

Given the publicity surrounding the trial, there are sure to be more than a few famous faces who’d love a shot at Reeva playing Oscar. Here are one or two actors with a clear line of sight on the role, and a couple of others who are just shots in the dark.

Matt Damon: Bourne to get away with it

Leonardo DiCaprio: Some say he murdered the South African accent in Blood Diamond, others thought that he was only guilty of failing to revive a little Rhodesian. This role would let him do a little bit of both.


Richard Roxburgh: Could this smile or this accent shoot an FHM model in cold blood?


Daniel Craig: Noted ladykiller


Verne Troyer (On stilts): Just think about it.
