The cast of Barry Sonnenfeld's Men In Black III has gained Michael Stuhlbarg. The actor plays Arnold Rothstein, one of the key players on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. He also starred in the lead role of the Coen brothers’ A Serious Man. The third installment of the sci-fi comedy is currently in production and stars Will Smith and Josh Brolin in the lead roles.
Stuhlbarg will star as “Griffin." in the film. Last year, it was reported that Sharlto Copley was circling the same role, but a deal never materialized. Currently, there are not too many details available about the film. We do know that there's a time travel element, allowing Brolin to play a young Tommy Lee Jones and Alice Eve, a young Emma Thompson, as the MIB agents try to save the world in 1969. Men In Black III will be released in 3D on May 25, 2012.
He will next be seen in Martin Scorsese's Hugo Cabret. I love Boardwalk Empire and thing Stuhlbarg is a good edition to the cast. What are your thoughts on this news?
