The original Highlander himself, Christopher Lambert, has joined the cast of Joel and Ethan Coen’s period comedy “Hail, Caesar!” at Universal Pictures. Filming is currently underway in Los Angeles.
Josh Brolin plays a fixer for the Hollywood studios in the 1950s with the action in the film kicking off in the wake of a star mysteriously disappearing during the middle of a shoot.
Lambert will play Arne Slessum, a married European filmmaker whose scandalous affair with a young starlet (Johansson) becomes another headache for the studio.
George Clooney, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, Channing Tatum, Alden Ehrenreich and Jonah Hill also star.
