15 Aug 2013
Finn Wittrock, who appeared as Happy in the Tony Award-winning Broadway revival of Death of a Salesman, has been cast in the Coen brothers film "Unbroken," according to Showbiz411.
Angelina Jolie will direct the World War II thriller in which Jack O'Connell will play Louis Zamperini, an Olympic runner taken prisoner by Japanese forces. Wittrock has been cast as a solder in his outfit.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
