Michael's next movie that he is about to start is 'Twelve Years a Slave' and according to news reports all week, it has a boatload of impressive names added on the cast. We already know that Michael is going to be the evil ass slave master bastard, so, announced to join we have Benedict Cumberbatch on board, Paul Giamatti, Alfre Woodard, Sarah Paulson has Epps' pathetic wife, and Lupita Nyong'o as the slave Patsey who is raped by Epps and beaten by him and his jealous wife. Michael is going to be a true asshole in this movie - I refuse to read the script, so I don't want to be spoiled by the high levels of his assholery, but let's just get it out of the way that this is going to be a very difficult film to watch, and impossible to like or find any redeeming values in Michael's character. But it's going to be another great film by Steve McQueen. If anyone can bring a slave epic to life with all it's brutality and honesty, it is Mr. McQueen!
And it has been confirmed the Penelope Cruz has joined the cast of The Counselor and it appears that she will play Michael's girlfriend Laura, leaving the hot Malkina role for Cameron Diaz. Well, whatever, this is going to be a great film... I would have enjoyed seeing the cast with lesser known actors, at least one of the females, but I ain't the casting director.
