Giovanni Ribisi, Juno Temple, Scott Mescudi, Mark Feuerstein, and Kevin Corrigan have all joined the cast of MEADOWLAND. The thriller marks the directorial debut of Reed Morano and follows a mother whose son disappeared. She finds herself on a dangerous path toward acceptance as she seeks out a relationship with a neglected boy and watches it take an unexpected turn. Olivia Wilde has been cast as the mother, while Luke Wilson will play her husband. Elisabeth Moss, Natasha Lyonne, and Ty Simpkins round out the rest of the cast.
Ribisi has a vast catalogue of films to his name, including dramedy “That Thing You Do,” war drama “Saving Private Ryan, and comedy “Ted,” although “Friends” fans will remember him as Phoebe’s little brother, Frank. Most recently, Ribisi starred in Seth MacFarlane’s “A Million Ways to Die in the West” and Ruben Fleischer’s “Gangster Squad.” Ribisi has a number of films in the works now, including the Ernest Hemingway biopic “Papa” and Ava DuVernay’s historical drama “Selma.”
Temple started out young, appearing in Joe Wright’s “Atonement” and Justin Chadwick’s “The Other Boleyn Girl” before going on to roles in “The Dark Knight Rises” and Disney’s “Maleficent.” Next up for Temple are roles in “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” and “Black Mass,” the story of Whitey Bulger, where she’ll re-team with her “Atonement” co-star Benedict Cumberbatch.
Mescudi, known best under his stage name Kid Cudi, is the musician and actor best known on screen for roles in “The Bling Ring,” “Need for Speed,” and will next appear as Ari’s assistant in the big screen version of “Entourage.”
Feuerstein’s most well known role is playing Dr. Hank Lawson on USA’s “Royal Pains,” and before that Feuerstein appeared on “The West Wing” in a guest role. On the silver screen, Feuerstein has appeared in rom-coms like “What Women Want,” “In Her Shoes,” and “In Your Eyes,” which also stars Zoe Kazan and Jennifer Grey.
Corrigan is known for his supporting roles in studio films like “The Departed,” “Pineapple Express,” and “Superbad,” but he has also made a name for himself in indie projects like “Somebody Up There Likes Me” and “Winter’s Tale.” Among his many projects in development are Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups” and crime drama “Laugh Killer Laugh” with Tom Sizemore and William Forsythe.
