Michael Shannon Performs The Crazy Delta Gamma Sorority Letter
Michael Shannon is one of the most esteemed thespians of his generation. With his lanky height, square jaw, and intense buggy eyes, Shannon has brought to life numerous violent, unstable characters in films like Revolutionary Road, Boardwalk Empire, and Take Shelter, and as General Zod in the upcoming Man of Steel. Heck, he even makes a movie like Let’s Go To Prison look better. But this week, with the help of the crew at Funny Or Die, Shannon took on his greatest role yet: the Crazy Delta Gamma Email Girl. (Note: NSFW.)
For those not familiar: the text comes from an email reportedly sent by the president of the Delta Gamma sorority chapter at the University of Maryland, and leaked to Gawker.
Internet sleuths later dug up more information on the young woman who is so concerned with “socializing” with the Sigma Nus. They uncovered a Twitter feed which offered such delightfully sensitive gems as: how to avoid being talked to by “Mexicans working along the sidewalk,” and the problems of being “overprivileged and white” while shopping at “ghetto malls.”
What do you think of Shannon’s performance?
