Kristin Lehman Joins Colin Firth In Arthur Newman, Golf Pro
One of the characters that was high on my list of suspects among those who may have had a hand in the murder of teen Rosie Larson in AMCís The Killing was Kristin Lehmanís character Gwen Eaton. Whether or not that theory holds up through the later episodes of the first season of the mystery series, I couldnít say, as I fell behind and have yet to get caught up on the show. From the sound of the new role Lehmanís character is playing in the upcoming film Arthur Newman, Golf Pro, itís doubtful sheíll be a murder suspect at any point, but there is death involved... sort of.
Arthur Newman, Golf Pro is a dark comedy that stars Colin Firth as Wallace Avery, an unhappy man who fakes his own death to escape his job and his family, and creates a new identify for himself. His do-over involves meeting a woman, played by Emily Blunt, who has her own problems. The two team up and find a future for themselves breaking into vacant homes and pretending to be the absent owners. It sounds a little like FXís short-lived series The Riches in that respect.
According to Variety, Kristin Lehman has been cast to play Wallace Averyís ex-wife. Given what the site says about Averyís family despising him, itís unlikely that sheíll be posing as the grieving widow in the movie. In fact, Varietyís description mentions that sheís living with her son and her new husband, so apparently, moving on when her husband (fake)died wasnít a problem.
Production on Arthur Newman begins this month in North Carolina.
