Wallace Langham eyes ‘Hitchcock’ role

'CSI' star would play Saul Bass in making of 'Psycho' film

“CSI” star Wallace Langham is in talks to play Saul Bass in Sacha Gervasi’s Fox Searchlight pic “Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of ‘Psycho.'”

Written by John McLaughlin, story chronicles the struggles faced by the iconic helmer and his wife, Alma Reville, during the making of horror classic “Psycho.” Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren star alongside Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel and James D’Arcy, as well as Toni Collette, Danny Huston, Michael Stuhlbarg and Michael Wincott.

Bass designed the main titles and handled the storyboards for “Psycho” and many of Hitchcock’s other films despite famously clashing with the headstrong helmer.

Ivan Reitman, Joe Medjuck and Tom Pollack are producing “Hitchcock” through their Montecito Picture Co. along with Tom Thayer.

A series regular on the hit CBS series “CSI,” Langham recently closed a deal to continue on the show for two more seasons. Thesp previously worked with Collette on “Little Miss Sunshine” and recently reteamed with that pic’s directors on Fox Searchlight’s romantic comedy “Ruby Sparks.” Langham will soon be seen in the indie pic “Buttwhistle,” exec produced by Dan Dubiecki.

Langham is repped by Abrams Artists Agency.
