Looks like Steven Spielberg must have finally caught up on all his binge-watching. The director (Hook) just added a dozen new names to his political drama The Papers, and if you’re caught up on the shows everyone expects you to watch, you’re sure to recognize the sizable talent he’s culled from primo TV.
According to Variety, Sarah Paulson (American Crime Story‘s Golden Globe winner), Bob Odenkirk (Fargo, Better Call Saul), Matthew Rhys (The Americans), Bradley Whitford (The West Wing), Carrie Coon (The Leftovers, Fargo), Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad, Fargo), David Cross (Arrested Development), Alison Brie (Community, Mad Men), Bruce Greenwood (Mad Men), Michael Stuhlbarg (Fargo), Zach Woods (Silicon Valley), and Tracy Letts (Homeland) have just signed on to the film. They’ll be joining fellow television icon Tom Hanks (Bosom Buddies) as well as Meryl Streep, both of whom were earlier this year cast as the film’s leads.
Previously titled The Post, The Papers is set to focus on the Washington Post and its role in exposing the 1971 Pentagon Papers. It’s hitting theaters in December, so if your name was not listed above, sorry, but you are probably not getting an Academy Award next year.
