Ving Rhames Joins Cast Of Prison Drama "Jamesy Boy"

Ving Rhames joins Mary-Louise Parker and James Woods have joined the cast of Jamesy Boy, the feature film debut of director/co-writer Trevor Wright.

The story centers on…

… a young man who goes from suburban street gangs to a maximum-security prison surrounded by hardened criminals. In prison, James fosters an unlikely friendship with a convicted murderer who ends up becoming his mentor and ultimately defines and changes the course of his life.

Hmmm… gee… I wonder who’s going to play the role of the convicted murdered/mentor/life-changer? I wonder… :)

The young man will be played by newcomer Spencer LoFranco.

No word on what characters Mary-Louise Parker and James Woods are playing… I’m guessing the young man’s parents?

Filming begins next month.
