This guy has been tagged to play Chris Cornell in the biopic–OR HAS HE? [Update]

This name is Lauchlin McDonald, who you might remember from Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle. Chris’ wife Vicky will be played by Drena De Niro, Robert De Niro’s adopted daughter.

Check this side-by-side comparison of Lauchlin and Chris.
