E.L. Doctorow's "Jolene" Nabs Sutherland, Richards, Mulroney and Vartan

by | October 9, 2006 | Comments

Director Dan Ireland ("Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont," "The Whole Wide World") has added four new castmembers to "Jolene," and who better to pop up in a teenage girl’s decade-long, cross-country search for happiness than Donald Sutherland, Denise Richards, Dermot Mulroney and (sigh) Michael Vartan?

"Jolene," based on a short story in E.L. Doctorow‘s "Sweet Land Stories," follows the disaster-prone life of a young woman as she travels across the country for ten years. Appearing in the title role will be newcomer Jessica Chastain; Brit actor Rupert Friend, Theresa Russell, and B-movie queen Shannon Whirry are on hand to add even more variety to the film’s supporting cast.
