Casting news update with Tom Cruise, Michael Rooker and more
It was a fairly big day in casting news, according to Deadline.com: First, Oblivion star Tom Cruise must like his sci-fi, because he's agreed to be in Yukikaze, based on the book by Chohei Kambayashi. That one involves anime aerial battles with interdimensional aliens or some such.
Meanwhile, The Walking Dead's Michael Rooker is using his free time to star in Marvel's upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy. He'll be playing Centauri IV native Yondu, and in all likelihood will have to shave his head.
Last but not least, elder statemen James Caan and Louis Gossett Jr. are both joining the boxing drama Fighting Man. That one stars acting powerhouses like Famke Janssen and Michael Ironside, so we don't know what to say about it, other than get ready to see it on FX every night for years.
