Week by week, it seems as though Steve McQueen’s next film ‘Twelve Years A Slave’ continues to impressively grow its cast. Collider has a story here that lists three great new additions to the project in Paul Giamatti, Sarah Paulson, and Garrett Dillahunt. After the jump you can see who they’ll be playing in the film opposite the likes of Michael Fassbender, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Paul Dano, Benedict Cumberbatch, Scoot McNairy, and Brad Pitt, but if McQueen continues to cast like this, it’s safe to say that this could be one of the better acted films of 2013 (assuming it actually comes out next year). Read on below…
Here’s what Collider says in their article about the newly casted actors and their roles:
Per Variety, Giamatti will be playing the character of Freeman in the pic, a man who takes control of the slaves once they reach New Orleans, while Paulson will play Fassbender’s jealous wife. As for Dillahunt, Deadline reports that the Raising Hope star will play a fellow field hand who works alongside Ejiofor’s character.
