JONAH HEX Casting News which includes Will Arnett

by Joey Paur

Believe it or not Will Arnett from 'Arrested Development' has joined the cast of Jimmy Hayward's comic book film adaptation of Jonah Hex. This story really isn't a comedy and it is hard for me to see Will Arnett play a serious role, so it should be interesting to see what he comes up with. He will play a Union soldier who enlists Hex and is blinded by the dirty fighting style of his enemies. No matter what Arnett does to be serious I still think I am going to find him funny. I don't think that is a good thing, but we'll see.

Also cast in the film recently was Michael Shannon from most recently 'Revolutionary Road' which he was nominated for Best Supporting Actor. Shannon will play the role of Doc Cross Williams, the bizarre ringleader of a brutal gladiator circus event. This character may end up in the sequels of the film if it does well. This guy is perfect for the role.

Josh Brolin, John Malkovich, and Megan Fox have already been cast in the Jonah Hex which is about a scarred bounty hunter who is tracking down a voodoo practitioner who wants to raise an army of the undead to liberate the south.

This film is really turning out to be something interesting. I can't wait to start seeing some production stuff from it.
