On the heels of yesterday’s announcement that saw Robert Duvall joining the cast of David Dobkin’s upcoming comedy drama The Judge, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Vincent D’Onofrio has signed on as well. He’ll play the older son of Duvall’s character and the brother of Robert Downey Jr.’s.
The film finds Downey as an attorney returning to his hometown for his mother’s funeral. Although Duvall’s character is the town judge, he’s also the only suspect in his wife’s murder and Downey’s character must balance years of estrangement and emotional distance in his effort to uncover the truth about what really happened.
D’Onofrio recently finished his longtime run on “Law & Order: Criminal Intent.”
The Judge will be produced by Dobkin, Susan Downey and David Gambino.
