Sarah Paulson in Talks To Join The Great Cast of OCEAN'S EIGHT
Ocean's Eight already has an awesome cast with people like Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, and Awkwafina on board, but that's only seven cast members. As the title of the Ocean's Eleven continuation implies, there needs to be at least one more (plus the antagonist), so we aren't done hearing about the casting process yet. The latest possible addition is, according to Deadline, actress Sarah Paulson, who made a big splash with her Emmy-nominated performance on FX's The People vs. O.J. Simpson earlier this year.
Bullock will lead this sequel as the ex-con sister of George Clooney's Danny Ocean, and she'll recruit her own team to steal a necklace from the Met Ball and frame a villainous gallery owner. Paulson hasn't signed on the dotted line yet, but assuming she does take the role, there's no word on whether she would be playing the eighth member of Bullock's team or if she'd be the gallery owner. Either way, she's clearly talented enough to pull off anything that's asked of her, so this seems like a good fit.
