Slash Film reckon that five time Coen collaborator, John Goodman has joined the cast of Inside Llewyn Davis, which would make it six appearances in the brothers’ movies, following turns in Raising Arizona, Barton Fink, The Hudsucker Proxy (kinda!), The Big Lebowski and O Brother, Where Art Thou? (not forgetting his role in their stage-based “radio play” Sawbones, their section of Theater of the New Ear). I’m so pleased to see them returning to what was once their repertory company, and I hope for roles for John Turturro, Frances McDormand and Steve Buscemi too! But maybe I’m being greedy!
Also in the frame to join the cast (according to Empire) is one Justin Timberlake! I know, I know, but after his stellar turn in The Social Network, we can’t doubt his acting chops.
