The T-1000 has shifted forms so that he will now be mimicking Bryan Cranston in Ruben Fleishcer’s Gangster Squad. After Cranston’s departure, the role of Texan cop Max Kennard will now be played by Robert Patrick, who played the “bad” cyborg in Terminator 2. But can a robot actually be “good” or “bad”? The answer is: I have no idea.

Patrick, who has been a working character actor since before his break in T2, is best known as Fox Mulder’s replacement in the later seasons of The X-Files, as well as degenerate gambler David Scatino on The Sopranos.

Gangster Squad is building excitement through casting alone, having also signed up Emma Stone, Sean Penn, Anthony Mackie, and Ryan Gosling.

The character of Max Kennard, as mentioned above, is a native Texan who has been transferred in to LA to take a crack at organized crime, led by Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn). I could see him nailing that southern accent, and his stoic presence could play well in this role. However, if he and Sean Penn are in a scene together, it could create a vortex of intensity that causes the universe to collapse into itself.

The upcoming spy thriller Safe House is already in production, but that doesn’t mean new names can’t be added to the cast – even ones that are hard to spell. So it is with Vera Farmiga, who has signed on as the handler to the character played by Ryan Reynolds, “a young agent assigned to escort a dangerous criminal to safety after they are attacked at a safe house.”

She’s joining Denzel Washington, Brendan Gleeson, Sam Shepard, Robert Patrick and Liam Cunningham in the Daniel Espinosa-directed movie. She did a pretty good job playing a kind-of-similar character in Source Code, and has made a bit of a niche for herself playing professional, attractive women in thrillers like The Departed. So, good casting, Hollywood casting people! This is why they pay you the big bucks. (Deadline)

There ain’t no party like a Safe House party, and when you throw a Safe House party, you need a whole bunch of somewhat well-known actors. That’s why Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day), Brendan Gleeson (the Harry Potter movies), Liam Cunningham (Clash of the Titans) and Sam Shepard (Black Hawk Down) are joining the cast of the new Denzel Washington thriller Safe House. The film is directed by Daniel Espinosa, who directed The Fighter, but not that The Fighter – a different The Fighter.

In the movie, Ryan Reynolds plays a CIA agent who needs to protect criminal Denzel Washington from assassins, after Reynold’s safe house is compromised. Will Ryan Reynolds‘ character secretly turn out to be a superhero, like all the other roles he’s been playing lately? We can only hope the Green Lantern shows up, so Hal Jordan and Alastor Moody can team up to fight T-1000. If that’s what’s gonna happen, I’ll be there opening night. (TheWrap)
