Mark Twain & Mary Baker Eddy - A film by Val Kilmer


George Kinter

George Kinter, 55, is Mrs. Eddy’s chief secretary and one of a select few metaphysical workers at Pleasant View whom Eddy relies on to “treat” – or pray specifically about – issues surrounding her life, home, church, and the world. Kinter himself was cured of chronic illness through Christian Science and became a successful healer and teacher of the Science. He made great sacrifices to come to Pleasant View, leaving behind a wife and a young niece who lived with them as a daughter.

    Kelsey Grammer

    Daniel von Bargen (had the recurring role of George’s boss, “Kruger,” on Seinfeld)

  29. Daniel says:

    Bobby Ray Shafer has the exact features of George Kinter and he’s a great actor too.

  30. I say see if Patrick Stewart would accept the part. He would be smashing!

  31. adrienne says:

    Bill Paxton

  32. Marianne says:

    Kelsey Grammer

  33. angie says:

    Terry O’Quinn or John Malkovich

  34. Doris Temme says:

    agree, John Malkovich

  35. Jorge Gonzalez says:

    i think he lots a lot like Brian Dennehy

  36. Karisma Wintak says:

    Terry Bradshaw

  37. Kip says:

    Wow yes absolutely Kevin Spacey or Patrick Stewart !!!

  38. jan says:

    Timothy Bottoms

  39. Wendy Ciarci says:

    This was hard. You need a very intense actor with lots of talent and the ability to become the person. My first suggestion is Tim Roth then Brad Dourif and finally Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All great actors and all can transform themselves. Don’t count Brad out because of all the B movies, watch, One flew over with Jack.

  40. Doris Temme says:

    Also, I’d like to suggest:

    Stephen Baldwin (born-again Christian)

    Timothy Bottoms (affiliation unknown)

    Kelsey Grammer (Christian Scientist, non-practicing)

  41. I would like to suggest an unknown actor but one who really looks the part–my husband John Ben Sutter who is a political science professor with some community theater credits–Big Daddy in Cat and Matthew Harrison Brady in Inherit the Wind. He has experience but isn’t known.

  42. Kay says:

    Larry David

  43. Clopin says:

    Kurtwood Smith or John Lithgow

  44. Lynne says:

    Brian Dennehy or John Goodman – choices based solely on appearance… Robert Duvall would be good here too, in terms of substance…

  45. Christopher Peckham says:

    My George Kinter readings would go to :
    Victor Garber and
    John Malkovich

  46. Michelle says:

    Kelsey Grammar

  47. Shirley Schoenherr Carey says:

    John Malkovich or Kelsey Grammar
