Cast Rounds Out For Casino Jack
George Hickenlooper made a pretty great decision when he cast Kevin Spacey as the lead in Casino Jack, the story of disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff. Now he's making a few more good choices as he rounds out the cast. Barry Pepper, Kelly Preston and Twilight's Rachell Lafevre have all been cast in supporting roles in the film, which is set to come out in March of next year.
According to a press release from the producers, Pepper will play Abramoff's protege Michael Scanlon, Lafevre Scanlon's love interest, and Preston will appear as Abramoff's wife Pam. Hard to say between Pepper and Preston which has the juicier part; both of them will get to play off Spacey in full-on creep mode, which must be fun for any actor. Filming starts in May in Toronto, presumably not long after Lafevre wraps work on the Twilight sequel New Moon.
