Benjamin Bratt Joins Dwayne Johnson in SNITCH; Beau Garrett to Play the Ex-Girlfriend in LUST FOR LOVE

     December 6, 2011


Benjamin Bratt has joined the cast of the Snitch, an action thriller led by Dwayne Johnson.  Johnson plays “a father forced to become an informant for the DEA to reduce his falsely accused son’s 10-year jail sentence.”  According to Variety, Bratt is a big name in the Mexican drug trade who complicates the situation for Johnson’s character.

Susan Sarandon, Barry Pepper, Jon Bernthal, Melina Kanakaredes, Michael K. Williams, Rafi Gavron, and Nadine Velazquez also star in the film, inspired by true events.  Production started this week in Louisiana under the direction of Ric Roman Waugh.  Snitch is tentatively scheduled for an early 2013 release.

Hit the jump for details on Beau Garrett’s role in Lust for Love.

beau-garrett-imageGarrett joins a cast made up mostly of former Dollhouse stars, including Fran Kranz, Dichen Lachman, Enver Gjokaj, and Miracle Laurie.  the screenplay by writer/director Anton King tells the story of a bashful man (Kranz): “After being dumped by his childhood crush, [he] enlists help from the ex-girlfriend’s best friend to win her back.”  Variety reports Garrett will play the ex-girlfriend.

From the logline, it sure sounds like a romantic comedy where Kranz falls in love with whoever the best friend.  Since it is an independent production, I won’t jump to conclusions.  Instead, I’ll celebrate the occasion to reunite so many Dollhouse actors.  (See also today’s new trailer for The Cabin in the Woods, produced by Dollhouse creator Joss Whedon.)  Based on her character description, Garrett is a nice addition to the cast, in the sense that she’s gorgeous.
