Of the many, many problems in the later seasons of the ultimately deflating “Lost,” it was the Michael/Walt storyline that got the most bungled. We’ll save our diatribe for another day, but that whole plot thread truly got ridiculous from the moment they tried to bring the pair back into the storyline after they leave on the boat. Since the show, Perrineau hasn’t quite found anything as high profile, but his next job should remedy that rather quickly.
Kathryn Bigelow has drafted the actor into her Osama Bin Laden pic. Perrineau will find himself rubbing shoulders with a pretty amazing cast including Joel Edgerton, Jessica Chastain, Mark Strong, Jason Clarke, Edgar Ramirez, Kyle Chandler, Chris Pratt, Jennifer Ehle and Nash Edgerton. As with everything else about this movie, his role is being kept locked up for now. It looks like we’re nearing the finish line in regards to casting, as the film will start shooting next month.
Given the tight frame, you can probably count this one out for any festival appearances, but look for it in theaters on December 19th. [Deadline]
