The meeting continues, and Lone Wolf wants to star in the movie. Is that really a shock? Long time readers will remember that he clearly understood the concept of an actor starring in his movie, as he previously requested Daniel Day Lewis. Is that inconsistent writing? Not really.
The Lone Wolf, like most insane narcissists I know, has a short and highly selective memory. This is a fun exchange between all three men. Funny to see Rosenstein flex his authority and put Lone Wolf in his place, as one might a child. Does Rosenstein have a man crush on the Lone Wolf? I’d say so. I’ve never smoked a cigar before (or a cigarette for that matter) but he makes it look fun; a nice affectation that adds something to the character.
