John Hawkes has been tapped to star in Ben Lewin’s indie drama Surrogate. Per Variety, the story “is based on the life of Mark O’Brien, a poet and journalist who, after spending most of his life with an iron lung as a result of polio, decides to explore his sexuality. He hires a sex surrogate and soon develops a relationship that changes both of their lives.” And this is an independent feature?! I can’t believe a studio wouldn’t want to make this.
I’ve been a big fan of Hawkes for a while and with his recent Oscar nomination for Winter’s Bone, I think he’s about to breakout in a big way. He’ll next be seen in supporting roles in Vera Farmiga’s Higher Ground, Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion, and the excellent Martha Marcy May Marlene.
