Yep, “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” continues to add cast members to the film that is still shooting and will continue to do so through the spring. And the latest to join the cast is a familiar face we haven’t really seen in a while.
Deadline reports that former “ER” star Goran Visnjic has joined the highly anticipated film and has signed up for three films, in the eventuality that sequels are made (likely something the rest of the key cast have options for in their contracts as well). Visnjic will play Dragan Armansky, the CEO of Milton Security that employs the young hacker Lisbeth Salander, and who becomes a father figure to the disturbed girl. While his post-“ER” career hasn’t quite gone the way of George Clooney (though it could be worse, he could be a Noah Wyle) this project should raise his profile considerably.
Visnjic joins a cast the includes Daniel Criag, Rooney Mara, Robin Wright, Christopher Plummer, Joely Richardson, Steven Berkoff, David Dencik, Stellan Skarsgård, Yorick van Wageningen, Bengt C.W. Carlsson and Mathilda von Essen. The film will hit theaters on December 21st and the poster may or may not include a topless Rooney Mara.
