Sam Rockwell teams with Brad Pitt and Andrew Dominik for Cogan's Trade
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
There are several films I’m looking forward to this year and Andrew Dominik’s mobster comedy COGAN’S TRADE is slowly creeping up that list. Along with all-star Brad Pitt, Dominik has landed an excellent actor in Sam Rockwell. We don’t know what role Mr. Rockwell will play yet, but his participation is confirmed (it was previously rumored). COGAN’S TRADE follows a man named Jackie Cogan (Pitt) who is an enforcer investigating a robbery that takes place during a high stakes gambling situation. This high stakes comedy is also supposed to star: Casey Affleck, Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Bill Murray, Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana but we still don’t have any confirmation for all the stars. COGAN’S TRADE is set to hit theaters sometime in 2012.
Keep an eye out for Sam Rockwell this Oscar season. Even though his name hasn’t graced a lot of lists, he may just be the dark horse in the Best Supporting Actor category for his turn in CONVICTION.
