Otto & Edgerton Return To Australia

Baz Luhrmann’s “Australia” project is proving a local boon for the actors with acting legend Barry Otto and “Star Wars” & “Kinky Boots” star Joel Edgerton being considered for support roles according to The Sun Herald.

The news comes on top of recent word that Jack Thompson may have been cast in a supporting role on the romantic Outback epic currently well into pre-production and set to begin filming shortly at both Fox Studios and in West Australia.

Also according to Baz the Great! and a Western Australia newspaper, the production team are currently searching for people with the same height and build as Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman to do some of the trickier riding sequences.
