Bryan Cranston joining Affleck’s Argo

Bryan Cranston joining Affleck’s Argo

Geez, the cast for this film is growing each day and only seems to be getting better and better. Following yesterday’s news that director Ben Affleck has cast himself in one of the lead roles for his film Argo, Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston is now in negotiations to play one of the co-leads in Warner Bros’. hostage-rescue true story.

Variety reports that Cranston will play Jack O’Donnell, Irish CIA agent from Boston who used to be President Eisenhower’s bodyguard. John Goodman and Alan Arkin also set to star.

The movie is based on Chris Terrio’s adapted work from Joshuah Bearman’s April 2007 Wired magazine article, titled “How the CIA Used a Fake Sci-Fi Flick to Rescue American from Tehran,” the film tells how the CIA and the Canadian government teamed to rescue six U.S. dipomats who’d been taken hostage at the American embassy by a group of Iranians in 1979. The CIA’s ruse involved the explanation that the six hostages were actually a Hollywood film crew scouting a movie titled “Argo,” and using those fake identities, they were able to flee the country.

George Clooney and Grant Heslov are producing the political drama through their Smoke House banner along with David Klawans.

Cranston is currently filming ”Rock of Ages” and will also co-star in the ”Total Recall” remake.
