Sebastian Stan is joining Meryl Streep, Kevin Kline, and Rick Springfield in RICKI AND THE FLASH. The dramedy stars Streep as an aging rock star who abandoned her children to find fame and returns to try to be the mother she should have been. Stan will play Joshua, Streep’s estranged son. Jonathan Demme is directing the project from a script penned by Diablo Cody.
Stan was recently – as in yesterday – cast in The Martian, but is probably best known for his role as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier in Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Before that, he appeared in smaller roles in films like Hot Tub Time Machine, Black Swan, and Rachel Getting Married. On the small screen, Stan has had roles in series like Gossip Girl, Political Animals, and Once Upon a Time.
Stan is repped by ICM and Brookside Artist Management.
