Just last week, we got word that Filly Brown star Gina Rodriguez would be providing her talents to the upcoming indie project, Sleeping With the Fishes. Now, Variety has informed us that Magic City star Steven Strait will star opposite Rodriguez for writer/director Nicole Gomez Fisher.
Rodriguez will be playing “a young woman who, after the death of her cheating husband, must return home to her dysfunctional, cross-cultural family.” With some aid from her “quirky sister (Ana Ortiz) and a budding new love interest (Strait), she begins to realize that on must lose everything in life to discover what has been buried there all along.” Priscilla Lopez will be playing Rodriguez‘ Puerto Rican mother and Tibor Felman as her Jewish father.
Strait hasn’t been around Hollywood all that long — he’s been acting in various and pretty random movies here and there since the early 2000’s, but finally (kind of) hit it big financially with 10,000 BC back in 2008. He was also in Raymond De Felitta‘s indie project, City Island, as well as the post-war drama, Stop-Loss. As briefly mentioned above, he currently plays one of Jeffrey Dean Morgan‘s sons on the Starz series Magic City.
Shooting for Sleeping With the Fishes starts this month in Brooklyn.
Do you think Strait and Rodriguez make a good on screen duo?
