A pair of amazing set photos confirm that Ridley Scott has started to roll cameras on The Counselor, but some extra parts need sorting before he’s fully stocked and ready to rock. Coming off a couple of late signings from last week, THR has learned that Natalie Dormer (Game of Thrones, Rush) will be appearing in the film, with Cormac McCarthy‘s script providing the actress a role which is “supporting in nature.” That’s really just a fancy way of saying she’ll have a supporting part.
It’s been clear that all the big spots in The Counselor have been handed off to, fittingly, the big players, and Dormer is not exactly one of them quite yet. Still, the fact that she may very well be onscreen for five minutes notwithstanding, it’s a pretty enormous step for the actress to be taking; combined with her bigger role on the next season of HBO’s medieval hit, things have started to come together for Dormer in a sharp fashion.
The Counselor stars Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Brad Pitt, Dean Norris, Rosie Perez, and John Leguizamo.
Does this pick affect Scott’s newest film in any profound way?
