Real-life couple Ed Harris and Amy Madigan have joined the cast of the WWE family drama “Big Red” which Mike Pavone is directing reports Variety.
Set in the mid-1960s, the story follows a bright 12-year-old forced to pair up on a project with his school’s biggest outcast (“Big Red”).
When the outcast fearlessly confronts a school bully, events are set in motion that changes their lives forever.
Harris will play the English teacher who brings the two boys together while Madigan will play the school’s principal. Randy Orton stars as the bully’s father.
Chase Ellison, Daniel Roebuck, Molly Parker and Mia Rose Frampton also star. Filming kicks off in New Orleans next week.
