Tim Blake Nelson Lands Two Interesting Parts...In Movies Directed By Tommy Lee Jones And James Franco!!
The awesome Tim Blake Nelson (O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU?, MINORITY REPORT, LINCOLN) has landed two interesting sounding gigs in two diversely different pictures, both helmed by well-established actors.
He'll appear as a troubled father in BUKOWSKI, written and directed by James Franco. When I first read the title, I saw erroneously saw the word 'bukaki' and now I'm all mixed up.
Nelson will play Henry Bukowski, a man who takes out his economic stresses violently on his son, eventually driving Charles to defend himself.
THE HOMESMAN, written and directed by (and starring) Tommy Lee Jones...
...being financed and co-produced by EuropaCorp, sees an untrustworthy man and a spinster school teacher team up to transport three woman deemed crazy via ox-drawn wagon across the Western plains. Nelson will play a man who covets one of the three women and tries to steal her.
The later of which sounds a tad like the previously announced plotline to the new MAD MAX movie. A little...not really...but sorta...a little. Or maybe not. Last I hear, Meryl Streep and Hilary Swank are also in THE HOMESMAN. Come what may, it's an interesting cast...
