Demian Bichir and Emilia Clarke Join DOM HEMINGWAY, Devin Ratray Cast in NEBRASKA, Boyd Holbrook Toplines Indie LITTLE ACCIDENTS

     October 4, 2012


Let’s take a look at some recent casting additions:

  • Demian Bichir (Savages) and Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) have joined Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes) in Dom Hemingway, director Richard Shepard’s crime comedy about the titular safe-cracker who’s out of prison and seeking what he’s owed.
  • Devin Ratray (Buzz from Home Alone) has been cast as a villain in Alexander Payne’s black-and-white drama, Nebraska.  The picture stars Bruce Dern (Monster) as an alcoholic father to his estranged son (Will Forte) as they embark from Montana to Nebraska to claim a million-dollar Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes prize.
  • Up-and-comer Boyd Holbrook (Milk) will topline the indie drama Little Accidents, a feature adaptation of writer/director Sara Coangelo’s award-winning short film by the same name which centers on a coal-mining town left devastated by a mining accident.

Hit the jump for more details on each film.

THR reports thatemilia-clarke-dom-hemingway Bichir and Clarke will join Law and Richard E. Grant in Dom Hemingway.  Jumayn Hunter (Eden Lake) and Madalina Ghenea (I Soliti Idioti: il film) have also boarded the film, but details on any of the new additions’ characters are scarce.  The plot follows a larger-than-life safecracker (Law) “with a loose fuse back on the streets of London after twelve years in prison. Travelling with his devoted best friend he visits his crime boss in the south of France to claim his reward.”  Production is scheduled to shoot in the south of France starting October 15th.

THR also reports that Ratray will star in Nebraska and play one half of villainous twins, sons of a character played by Stacy Keach (The Bourne Legacy).  The picture, penned by Bob Nelson also stars Bob Odenkirk (Breaking Bad).  Production on Nebraska is set to begin later this month. Ratray can next be seen alongside Ryan Reynolds in R.I.P.D.

Finally, Variety reports on Holbrook top-lining the feature-length adaptation of Little Accidents.  The film follows events unfolding after a mining accident kills 12 men in a small American coal town.  The themes of tragedy and redemption are explored through the intersecting tales of three people: the lone survivor of the accident (Holbrook), a mourning mother and a 14-year-old boy with a tragic secret of his own. Holbrook’s own father reportedly worked in coal mines for thirty years, so the role comes with a down home connection.  The actor continues to build his resume, having worked with directors Gus Van Sant, Vera Farmiga, Steven Soderbergh, Terrence Malick, Scott Cooper and Naomi Foner.
