Hollywood's tallest actor Kevin Durand has joined the cast of David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis. In the film, he will play Robert Pattinson's head of security. To prepare for the role, he will practice stiff-arming overzealous teenage girls and some weird moms.

In the film, Pattinson plays a newlywed billionaire who loses his riches and lady in the course of one day. One very shitty day. There's no word yet whether Durand will be expected to make love to an insect, turn into an insect, make love to James Spader, have a butt-naked knife fight, ward off mutant children, or have his head explode. But given that this is a Cronenberg film, you can expect any of those events are likely to happen within the first act. (Variety)
