Oscar Isaac Gets “Sucker Punch”-ed
One of Hollywood’s hottest up-and-comers has just landed the male lead in a big new film.
Oscar Isaac, who’s already the star of this fall’s historical epic “Agora” with Rachel Weisz, has been tapped by “Watchmen” director Zack Snyder for Warner’s “Sucker Punch.”
Isaac will be in good company, with Carla Gugino, Vanessa Hudgens, Jena Malone and Abbie Cornish all vying for his attention. Jon Hamm even makes a cameo.
We’ll see Oscar next summer with Russell Crowe in “Robin Hood.” He plays King John. It’s his second Ridley Scott-Russell Crowe movie, after “Body of Lies.”
I should point out that Oscar is managed by Jason Spire, the same guy who’s got Anthony Mackie ‘ hot as a pistol ‘ on track for a Best Supporting Actor nod in the current “Hurt Locker.” Mackie is currently appearing in the Public Theatre’s Central Park production of “The Bacchae.” You may not recognize him, though. In the second act, he wears a lovely frock and high heels. Let’s just say it’s an unforgettable sight!
