On November 16th, Science Channel and Discovery Channel will air "The Challenger Disaster".
Academy Award winner William Hurt will star as Richard Feynman.
We were only shown 31 seconds but my preliminary feeling is that it might be enough to say a rather unexpected thing – that what this actor is missing to really resemble Richard Feynman is playfulness, some charisma (visually, in the behavior, gestures, as well as voice), and showmanship.
But it should be very interesting, anyway. I hope that we, the viewers outside America, will eventually be able to watch it, too.
