Watch out everybody the creepy guy from There Will Be Blood and Little Miss Sunshine has landed a new gig. According to Deadline, Paul Dano has been cast in Jon Favreau’s film Cowboys & Aliens. The actor will join Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde, Harrison Ford, Noah Ringer, and Sam Rockwell in the sci-fi/western.
Not only has Dano joined the cast but Keith Carradine, and Clancy Brown will also get in on the action. Clancy was last seen playing a high school principal/angry parent in A Nightmare on Elm Street, while Carradine recently appeared on Showtime’s “Dexter.” Dano’s role hasn’t been revealed but Carradine will play a small town sheriff and Clancy will be a cowboy. Is it wrong that we expected him to play some type of over the top bad guy? He’ll always be Lex Luthor from “Superman” and “Justice League” the animated series in our eyes!
Cowboys & Aliens will center on outer-space creatures who land in Arizona circa the mid-19th century intent on enslaving the local population — until a group of cowboys and Apache Indians fight back. Craig will play Zeke Jackson, the revolt leader and a very talented gunman.
What do you think of the latest three actors joining the cast? Who do you think Dano will play?
