Tim Roth, perhaps one the more undervalued actors of his generation, has just signed on to something he hasn’t been a part of for far too long: a project that just might be worth his time. That happens to be the indie drama Arbitrage, starring Richard Gere, Eva Green, Susan Sarandon and breakout actress Brit Marling.
Set to be directed by Nicolas Jarecki (who also wrote the script), the movie follows a “troubled hedge fund magnate who is forced to turn to an unlikely ally when he makes an error.” Variety says that Roth’s role is said to be Michael Gower, a detective investigating a murder. Filming begins soon, with production scheduled for a start this month in New York City.
Roth’s one of my favorite actors working today, and it’s good to see he’ll be doing something other than Lie To Me. His talent isn’t a big secret, either. Just look at his work in Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Youth Without Youth; it’s fantastic stuff. He should make a good addition to the already strong cast, and this seems like a film that’s quietly turning into an intriguing little movie.
Are you happy Roth is joining the cast? Are you a fan of his past work, and do you have any anticipation for Arbitrage?
