Cronenberg's 'Cosmopolis' Casting Skewing Younger, Paler
Further, the talk on Paul Giamatti playing the billionaire's stalker has died down as well, which ominously suggests that they might be turning Cosmopolis into The Game for a younger set. Ugh. Here's to hoping they at least pull a down-on-his-luck William H. Macy or Phillip Seymour Hoffman in there to add some depth. That's not to say Knightley isn't a decent actress, but she's so hot that it's hard to pay attention to her role. Phillip Seymour Hoffman's never had that problem.
Cosmopolis follows a billionaire (Pattinson) ove 24 hours as he cheats on his wife, gets stalked, and loses his fortune. Sounds like a pretty good premise. Here's to hoping that they can get the right team together. (Playlist)
