“Captain Phillips” actor Michael Chernus has landed a starring role in Cameron Crowe’s UNTITLED CAMERON CROWE ROMANCE PROJECT. He’ll star alongside Emma Stone, Bradley Cooper, Rachel McAdams, Danny McBride, Alec Baldwin, Bill Murray and Jay Baruchel in the romantic-comedy.
The story follows a defense contractor who is hired to oversee the launching of a weaponized satellite in Hawaii, but instead teams up with an Air Force pilot to scuttle the project. There is no word yet on who Chernus will be playing.
Chernus most recently appeared in Michael Urie’s “He’s Way More Famous Than You”, Paul Greengrass’ “Captain Phillips” and as Louie on Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie.” He has a recurring role on Netflix’s original series “Orange is the New Black” as Cal Chapman.
Chernus is repped by UTA.
