Since there's a lot of talking linking Pilate with Germans & Scotts, in a would-be film probably they should hire a redhair actor not wearing a Roman robe. Pilate ruled in conjunction with the Jewish authorities and was under orders from Emperor Tiberius, to respect their culture. He was more a soldier rather than a diplomat. David Bowie was suggested to play his Pilate as a Scottish. He refused. I liked Gary Oldman cynical performance using Jews to get rid of the problem in tv series of Jesus. Yet, he should've worn the soldier uniform as did Rod Steiger in Zeffirelli's work IMHO. I don't think a militar like him would invest too much time in shaving off his head like King of King's Telly Savalas.
