Michael Shannon Reads the Insane Delta Gamma Sorority Letter from Michael Shannon

Michael Shannon is famous for playing intense characters like Agent Van Alden in Boardwalk Empire and General Zod in the upcoming Man of Steel. But that pales in comparison with his latest role as demented sorority president Rebecca Martinson. This micromanaging sociopath took out her frustrations with her Delta Gamma sisters in a viral email that is chock full of crazy. So, who else could give the letter the dramatic reading it deserves but Michael Shannon? He shows his acting chops in this clip in the ways he finds to vary the performance. In the hands of a lesser actor the reading would just be screamed the entire time. If you start out hot and don't find peaks in the line readings it can become overwhelming quick.

Shannon deserves and Oscar for this.
