"The Departed" Adds Some Much-Needed Female Support

by | March 25, 2005 | Comments

Just last week it was announced the funnyman Anthony Anderson was joining Leonardo DiCaprio, Jack Nicholson, Mark Wahlberg, and Matt Damon in Martin Scorsese‘s "The Departed," and now comes some casting news of the feminine variety. Joining the testosterone-heavy ensemble is up & coming star Vera Farmiga, whom you most likely remember from movies like "Iron Jawed Angels" and "The Manchurian Candidate." Given a cast (and director) like what’s being offered here, "The Departed" is obviously a hotly-anticipated project, plus it’s a remake of an Asian cult classic ("Infernal Affairs"), so each little bit of casting news is certainly worth mentioning. Screenwriter William Monahan ("Kingdom of Heaven") is doing the adapting.
