Justin Long is joining up with James McAvoy and Robin Wright Penn in Robert Redford's new historical drama, The Conspirator, which tells the story of Confederate sympathizer Mary Surratt (Wright Penn), who was tried as a conspirator in the Lincoln assassination, and Col. Frederick Aiken (McAvoy), who reluctantly agreed to defend her before a military tribunal.

Long is set to play McAvoy's characters best friend and conscience who is a soldier who lost a limb in the Civil War.

This will be the first period drama for Justin Long, who is mostly known for his comedic film roles and the Mac guy on in th Apple commercials. I think he'll do just fine in this film.

The movie starts shooting in Georgia this month, and being the big history fanatic that I am, I am really looking forward to seeing this movie!
