Mark Duplass Joins Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty

Kathryn Bigelow
’s Zero Dark Thirty is one of the anticipated movies of 2012, and for good reason. Bigelow gave us the excellent war film The Hurt Locker and she’s re-teaming with Hurt Locker Mark Boal to bring us an Osama Bin Laden related war thriller.

The cast is already quite impressive and today Deadline is reporting that another talented individual has joined the film, actor-director Mark Duplass.

Duplass, who is best know for directing comedy movies like Cyrus and Jeff, Who Lives At Home, has starred in independent movies like Humpday, Your Sister’s Sister and Safety Not Guaranteed. His role in Bigelow’s film is being described as a key supporting role, but no other information has been revealed.

Zero Dark Thirty already boasts names like Jessica Chastain, Mark Strong, Joel Edgerton, Harold Perrineau and Chris Pratt. Now that Duplass has joined, that casting sheet is even more impressive.

Zero Dark Thirty will hit theaters on December 19th.
