Matt Craven has joined the ever-growing cast of Roland Emmerich’s STONEWALL. The period drama centers on a young man’s political awakening set against the backdrop of the Stonewall Riots which sparked the gay rights movement in the 1960s. Craven has been cast as Deputy Seymour Pine, the leader of the raiding police force who is sympathetic to the cause. He joins the cast that includes Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Ron Perlman, and Jeremy Irvine.
This project marks a re-teaming of Craven and director Emmerich who previously worked together on 2013’s action/drama “White House Down.” Before that, Craven also starred in “Justified,” “Crimson Tide,” and “X-Men: First Class.” Craven is also filming the ABC adaptation “Resurrection” where he plays Fred Langston, the sheriff of a small town that is changed forever when deceased loved ones start to return.
