Get Carter movie remake in 2000 with prototype Mark Zuckerberg?
Mood:  quizzical
Topic: culture

ABC tv public broadcaster here in Australia are running a BBC doco on Facebook.

When I saw Mark Zuckerberg's certain type of look I was reminded of the Jeremy Kinnear/Alan Cumming character in the fairly unappreciated US remake in 2000 of the original British gritty drama Get Carter

The Jeremy character 'is a Harvard graduate' who exclaims that he 'doesn't do porn' even though he does, which at that time one presumes the internet was already obsessed with. He also has another memorable line 'I have more money than God.' He gets pushed around by Carter and told 'to be a man for once in your life' and he gets 'a second chance'.

Here is the actor Alan Cumming picture, who has a profile on wikipedia. Sort of the same, sort of not. It's mainly in the big brain bubble head and the internet script line, as a precious super rich brat, though Zuckerberg comes across as a better character than his movie prototype.
