Sons Of Anarchy's Patrick St. Esprit Joins The Last Of Robin Hood
Hollywood thrives on scandals, and the sexual misconduct of actors within the Hollywood system offers a wealth of stories to choose from. Quinceanera directors Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland are set to bring the story of Errol Flynn's fling with a 17-year-old to the screen for The Last of Robin Hood, and another actor has joined this already talented cast, as I>Sons of Anarchyís Patrick St. Esprit will be joining Kevin Kline, Susan Sarandon, and Dakota Fanning for the indie production.
According to Variety, St. Esprit will play Herb Aadland, husband to Sarandonís Florence and father to Beverly (Fanning), who was reportedly seduced by the forty-something Flynn when she was just a teen. St. Esprit plays a down-to-earth engineer who doesnít understand why his wife is so obsessed with Hollywood and gets angry upon hearing of his daughterís tryst with the Robin Hood star. I canít imagine that St. Esprit was added because of his theoretically calm demeanor in situations where his daughter is being manhandled by someone three times her age. There will probably be some threats thrown around.
Besides his appearances on S.O.A. and other series, St. Esprit has recently been filming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and the indie drama Torn, and will soon start on the sci-fi/horror Liberty with Michael Ironside.
The Last of Robin Hood takes place over the last few days of Flynnís life before his death of a heart attack at age 50. The story comes from an original screenplay written by the directors and the film will begin shooting soon in Atlanta for a late-2013 release.
