Jon Bernthal will star alongside Dwayne Johnson and Susan Sarandon in Snitch. Deadline reports that the Walking Dead star has joined the Ric Roman Waugh-directed action drama for Summit Entertainment. Filming is slated to star in Louisianna next month.
Johnson plays "a construction company owner who becomes a DEA snitch to reduce his son’s prison sentence." Bernthal plays "an ex-con laborer for the construction company who is forced by his boss to help connect him to an underground drug dealer." Berntha starred in HBO’s The Pacific and Roman Polanski's The Ghost Writer.
Bernthal has a great on screen presence and he will be a perfect addition to this cast. I am intereested in seeing him play a different character than the one he typically plays on Walking Dead. What are your thoughts on this casting news?
