Today in Old White Man Casting News, Anthony Hopkins has joined Rachel Weisz in Fernando Meirelles' 360, and Christopher Plummer has signed on for David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Good for these two AARP card carrying members. They know the true secret to not dying: keep working!
Anthony Hopkins is the first of many that will be cast in the Peter Morgan-scripted 360, as the movie revolves around ten characters. It “examines sexual morals within and between social classes, using various pairs of characters who have sexual encounters in and outside of their social classes.” No word yet who Hopkins will be banging, but I've been told one of the characters is named The Whore. So maybe Lindsay Lohan.
In Dragon Tattoo, Christopher Plummer will play the wealthy industrialist who hires Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara to solve a 40-year-old murder. In the process, they find all kinds of deep, dark, effed up secrets in his family. Plummer seems like the perfect person for the role. His character has to get out a lot of exposition, and he should do just fine keeping the viewer intrigued. When Plummer gets intense it's as if he could hit you with a switch at any moment.
