Isaiah Washington may have comeback role as DC sniper in ‘Blue Caprice’

The horror that struck Washington D.C. during the 2002 Beltway Attacks has been recreated in a critically acclaimed new film, Blue Caprice.

Actor Isaiah Washington and 20-year-old newcomer Tequan Richmond star in the lead roles and are attracting major buzz.

Washington plays real-life criminal John Allen Muhammad while Richmond plays his young accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo.

The pseudo-father-son duo terrorized the nation’s capitol, killed 10 people and left three others injured in their wake.

The thriller, directed by Alexandre Moors,  has won raves so far with both Washington and Richmond being singled out for their work.

“Isaiah Washington gives a searing, intense performance,” said the Los Angeles Times.

Some are speculating that this could be a comeback role for Washington, who was fired from the ABC hit series Grey’s Anatomy in 2007 after an on-set incident in which he allegedly used a gay slur.

Although he has landed other roles since, Blue Caprice could be his most noteworthy project of the last five years.
