In some news coming from Variety, Kevin Corrigan will be re-teaming with his American Gangster co-star Russell Crowe for Akiva Goldsman‘s directorial debut, Winter’s Tale.
Based on Mark Helprin‘s 1983 novel of the same name, the project is one of fantasy, taking place alternatively in 19th Century and present-day Manhattan, involving a thief who falls for the dying daughter of a rich patriarch who’s house he’s broken in to. Downtown Abbey‘s Jessica Brown Findlay is set to co-star alongside vets like William Hurt, Jennifer Connelly, Matt Bomer, Eva Marie Saint and Will Smith – who will be providing a short cameo as a judge.
As for Crowe, he will be playing Pearly Soames, described as a “a ruthless, violent criminal who serves as the leader of the Short Tail gang pursuing the protag.” Corrigan will be playing the role of Romeo Tan, right-hand man to Crowe’s character and needs to track down our main thief character.
Corrigan has spent the better part of his career playing various off-beat characters, most notably Uncle Eddie for the relatively short lived series Grounded for Life. For the past few years, he’s definitely kept busy; having roles recently in The Dictator and Seven Psychopaths. He will be seen next on CBS, with a recurring role in The Mentalist.
Do you think Corrigan is a good match for Winter’s Tale?
