Strathairn Signs Up for New Line's "Fracture"

by | January 31, 2006 | Comments

Movie geeks all over the place have admired character actor David Strathairn for several years now, but with his mega-praised performance in "Good Night, and Good Luck." in plain view, it looks the the guy will be getting some meatier roles sometime soon. First up: a New Line legal thriller entitled "Fracture."

Says The Hollywood Reporter: "David Strathairn, currently receiving accolades for his work in "Good Night, and Good Luck," has come aboard "Fracture," a thriller being directed by Gregory Hoblit for Castle Rock Entertainment and New Line Cinema.

Ryan Gosling and Anthony Hopkins already have been cast in the story that follows an assistant district attorney (Gosling) who plays a cat-and-mouse game with a man (Hopkins) who tried to kill his wife but was set free on a series of technicalities.

Strathairn plays the district attorney, Gosling’s boss."

(My favorite Strathairn performance is still that of White Sox pitcher Eddie Cicotte in John Sayles’ "Eight Men Out.")
