Sam Rockwell joining Daniel Craig and Olivia Wilde in Cowboys and Aliens
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
It looks like Sam Rockwell and Jon Favreau hit it off on the set of IRON MAN 2. The extremely underrated actor is set to join Favs on his next high profile directing effort COWBOYS AND ALIENS. The film is about an alien invasion set in the Old West and the resulting teaming of the cowboys and Indians to thwart their common enemy. Rockwell will play a bar owner that joins the heroes as they fight the aliens. Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde and Harrison Ford are all set to star in the comic book adaptation.
Sam Rockwell has become one of my favorite actors over the years after turning in some great performances in CONFESSIONS OF A DANGEROUS MIND and THE HITCHHIKERS GUIDE TO THE GALAXY. I hate that he doesn’t get bigger parts, but everything he does get, he does very well with.
