Sam Waterston has been cast as said professor, Walter Zarrow. Oscar-nominated Glenn Close will play Zarrow’s wife Marcia, with Corey Stoll (Midnight In Paris) as an investment banker who witnesses the attack and Gretchen Mol as his wife, an alcoholic New Jersey homemaker.
As I reported Sunday, Twilight‘s Kristen Stewart has taken a supporting role in the ensemble drama; she’ll play Zarrow’s troubled student Sophie. Nelson will step in front of the camera himself to play Zarrow’s son.
- EXCLUSIVE: Twilight‘s Kristen Stewart has joined the ensemble cast of writer-director Tim Blake Nelson‘s Anesthesia in a small role.
She’ll be shooting for a few days on the indie, about a group of New Yorkers whose lives are touched by the same philosophy professor.
Pic is currently filming in NYC. Nelson’s last directorial effort was 2009′s Leaves Of Grass, which he also starred in and scripted. Stewart is repped by The Gersh Agency.
