Illustration for article titled Was Darwin The Spicoli Of His Times?

Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany are cast as married couple in Jon Amiel's biopic Creation about the life of Charles Darwin. Bettany will won't be donning much of the evolutionary theorist's mighty beard, because this picture promises to show us the life of a young Darwin, and his struggles. THR claims, "The scientist finds himself caught in a struggle between faith and reason, love and truth." I'm all for anything that shows "crazy" Darwin hot rodding around town smoking cigarettes and chasing skirts. But what kind of man was he in his youth, was he a Spicoli, a Bueller or a Dean, and can he out do the Kinsey movie? [The Hollywood Reporter]
