Little did I know he was en route to take over the lead!
I just received a press release from the great team at COPPERHEAD that reads... "Billy Campbell (The Killing) has joined the cast in the starring role of patriarch Abner Beech replacing Jason Patric."
So that's big...and who's kidding who.... that's lovely!
We first told you about the Ron Maxwell US Civil War movie on June 1, 2012 (post) currently shooting at Kings Landing in Prince William, New Brunswick.
As you can read from the tweets Billy will be back in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia on July 14th for the launch of his beautiful schooner. We were there for the Shutter Plank Ceremony in the winter - it'll be wonderful to enjoy another great event this summer. You can see that interview by clicking here.
No doubt he'll return to Nova Scotia again in the fall for the theatrical release of THE DISAPPEARED - details on dates still forthcoming.
Meanwhile Billy's hit series The Killing is winding down it's second thrilling season with the first of a two part season finale this Sunday, June 10th on AMC. It's been quite a campaign for his character Mayoral candidate Darren Richmond and still we don't know who killed Rosie Larson.
One thing I know for certain - I'm really looking forward to seeing him on the big screen in COPPERHEAD - will have more on the production in the days and weeks to come! SABS
