Casting News for Jack Nicholson, Kit Harington, and Brandon T. Jackson

Warner Brothers is courting Jack Nicholson for their upcoming courtroom dramedy, The Judge, in which they hope the 3-time Academy Award winner will play the alienated and Alzheimer’s-stricken father of a lawyer played by Robert Downey Jr. In the film, Nicholson’s character is a judge who is the prime suspect in the murder of his wife, while his son seeks out the truth and tries to reconnect with a family he barely knows.

Game of Thrones star, Kit Harington, is in talks to star in Paul W.S. Anderson’s upcoming disaster film, Pompeii, which will tell of the ancient Roman city that was destroyed by Mount Vesuvius’ infamous volcanic eruption.

It looks like CBS has found their man to follow in the footsteps of Axel Foley (the character made famous by Eddie Murphy). In their television adaptation of Beverly Hills Cop, Brandon T. Jackson (Tropic Thunder) will star as Aaron, Axel’s son, with Murphy possibly recurring his role beyond the pilot episode.
