Exclusive: Peter Sarsgaard Reveals he’s in James Mangold’s WICHITA with Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz

Earlier today, I attended the Los Angeles press day for “An Education”. The film is a coming-of-age story about a teenage girl (Carey Mulligan) in 1960s suburban London and how her life changes after meeting a man nearly twice her age (Peter Sarsgaard). It’s a great movie and something worth checking out.

Anyway, towards the end of my interview with Peter, I asked what he’d be doing next. He revealed he’s about to leave for Boston to be in director James Mangold’s “Wichita” opposite Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. When I asked what character he’d be playing, he’d only say he was Tom Cruise’s foil. Does that mean he’s the villain? I don’t know. But I do know he hadn’t been announced as part of the cast yet. Watch what he said about “Wichita” after the jump:

According to IMDB, “Wichita” is an action-comedy that begins when a small-town woman (Diaz) has a chance encounter with a mysterious man (Cruise). He is either the man of her dreams or, perhaps … her nightmares. Amid shifting allegiances and unexpected betrayals, they are swept up in a whirlwind of globe-hopping adventure and world-changing secrets.

Finally, click here for a review of “An Education”, and here’s some clips from the film. Look for my full interview with Peter soon.
