Actor Tim Roth is one of the best there is at looking serious in both independent film and mainstream Hollywood product. And now he has the perfect opportunity to look serious on a new project, with Nicholas Jarecki’s drama Arbitrage along with fellow serious-face Richard Gere. Here’s a serious plot synopsis:

“Jarecki’s script focuses on a troubled hedge fund magnate, so desperate to sell his trading empire that when he makes a mistake he turns to an unlikely person for help and that leads him down a dangerous trail.”

That sounds pretty good (seriously), and the addition of Tim Roth is always a welcome improvement. And as everyone knows, Richard Gere is a decent actor. Hopefully the rest of the movie will live up to his decent standards. (Deadline)

Decent Actor Richard Gere Close To Joining ‘Arbitrage’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/decent-actor-richard-gere-close-to-joining-arbitrage/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/decent-actor-richard-gere-close-to-joining-arbitrage/#comments Mon, 07 Feb 2011 21:05:19 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=25277 Here's some news that big pink dog will enjoy. Richard Gere is getting back in the game.

Richard Gere is close to signing on to the Nicholas Jarecki-directed drama Arbitrage.  An earlier press release reported that Al Pacino had signed on to the lead as a shady hedge fund manager trying to sell off his empire before its collapse. Whether Gere is taking over that role or appearing in a supporting capacity isn’t known at this time. But if Nicholas Jarecki saw Son Of No One, that would explain Pacino’s dismissal.

Either way, this could prove to be Gere’s toughest role to date as he might have to share the screen with Drake. It takes a fine actor to counteract Drake‘s bland appeal. And as the pink dog sporting sunglasses in the inset photo has illustrated, Gere is merely a decent actor. (Deadline)

Drake may not have a lot of different facial expressions, but he does get a lot of work done. From Degrassi: The Next Generation to #1 hit singles, it seems like there’s nothing the milquetoast toast of the music world hasn’t done. Now The Fresh Prince of Bel-Lazy Eyes is looking to add a second movie role to his filmography.

Arbitrage is an indie film written and directed by Nicholas Jarecki (“The Outsider”), and Drake may co-star with Eva Green and Susan Sarandon. The film is about a shifty hedge fund manager trying to pawn off his about-to-collapse empire to an unsuspecting bank before it’s too late, and a lot of bad shit happens to him.

No word yet on what character Drake plays, but we bet he’s described in the script as “smooth.” When you want so smooth, you kinda get drowsy looking at him, you go to Drake. If he got Bill Murray to mentor him though, that might be a game changer. (TheWrap)
