Louis C.K. Joining David O. Russell's Next Film

January 12, 2013


Emmy winner Louis C.K. ("Louie") is joining Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Amy Adams in next film from David O. Russell, who just received an Oscar nomination for writing and directing Silver Linings Playbook.

Louis C.K., who recently starred in Woody Allen's upcoming Blue Jasmine, will play a key role in the film, formerly known as "American Bullsh*t," says The Hollywood Reporter.

The Columbia Pictures film is based on the true story of a notorious financial con artist (Bale) and his mistress/partner in crime (Adams), who were forced to work with an out of control federal agent (Cooper) to turn the tables on other con artists, mobsters, and politicians. At the epicenter of the entire tale, is the passionate and volatile leader of the New Jersey state assembly (Renner) who is also the local hero and mayor of impoverished Camden.

Louis C.K. is set to play an FBI agent in the movie, set to start filming next month.
