Anthony Mackie to join Sam Worthington in Man on a Ledge
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
After his great turn in THE HURT LOCKER, Anthony Mackie has been relatively quiet until now. Today he joins the cast of MAN ON A LEDGE, which is about a female psychologist trying to handle a former NYPD policeman that’s threatening to jump off a ledge. Sam Worthington will play the jumper and the psychologist hasn’t been cast yet. We don’t know what Mackie will play, but with the two juicy roles either taken or for a female, we can assume there’s more to the story than what little we know so far.
I’d like to see Mackie do some bigger movies. I think he’d do well in a big summer blockbuster or an action movie of sorts. My only complaint with him is that he always seems angry. No matter what he’s saying or how he says it, he always comes off like he’s angry at someone or something. So a romantic comedy is probably out of the question.
