Good news Stacy Keach fans! Hello? Is anyone listening? Whatever. Stacy Keach has signed on to join the cast of The Bourne Legacy, joining Edward Norton, Jeremy Renner, and Rachel Weisz in the project directed by Tony Gilroy. It is thought that he will have one of those “heartless bureaucrat” roles populated in past Bourne films by Chris Cooper, Joan Allen, and Albert Finney. It’s almost certain that he won’t be playing Jeremy Renner’s sexy sidekick. KEACH!
In somehow stranger casting news, select Pittsburgh Steelers, including America’s favorite quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, will have a cameo masquerading as a Gotham City gridiron gang in Christopher Nolan‘s the Dark Knight Rises. Of course, because this film is shrouded in secrecy, it’s unknown what the hell is going on, other than they will be filmed in some sort of pregame routine at Heinz Field. At press time, it’s unknown if they will be aidin the Dark Knight in his crusade, a la the Harlem Globetrotters and Scooby-Doo.
