Bello, Nelson Join “Company Men”

Maria Bello and Craig T. Nelson have joined the cast of John Wells’ “The Company Men” says Variety.

The story deals with the impact that a corporate downsizing has on both its casualties and survivors. Ben Affleck plays a corporate hotshot whose Porsche and six-figure salary vanish after he gets laid off.

Kevin Costner plays his brother-in-law, a salt-of-the-earth drywall installer who gives him a construction job.

Tommy Lee Jones plays a senior partner in the firm, a principled man who struggles with the greedy actions of his partners.

Bello will play the vice president of human resources, who is forced to fire Affleck’s character. Nelson plays the CEO of the global conglomerate.
