Versatile Adewale Akinnuoye Agbaje (“Lost”, “Bullet in the Head”, “The Thing”) has joined the cast of the “Annie” remake.

The movie, which begins shooting today in New York, now has quite the cast – Quvenzhané Wallis (“Beasts of the Southern Wild”) plays the title role, Jamie Foxx plays Benjamin Stacks (the film’s version of ‘Daddy Warbucks’), Rose Byrne is playing vice principal Grace, and Cameron Diaz is playing Miss Hannigan, the evil Orphanage owner.

Agbaje is playing Nash, who works as a bodyguard and driver for Stacks, and who develops a friendship with Annie.

Will Gluck (“Easy A”) is directing the film, which Will Smith and Jay Z serve as producers on.
