Richard Jenkins Joins “Cogan’s Trade”

Richard Jenkins has joined the cast of the comedy-toned crime caper “Cogan’s Trade” at Inferno says Variety.

Brad Pitt stars as Jackie Cogan, a professional enforcer investigating a heist which takes place during a mob-run high stakes poker game.

Jenkins will play a lawyer who provides Cogan with inside information regarding the game. Javier Bardem, Mark Ruffalo, Sam Rockwell, Casey Affleck, James Gandolfini and Bella Heathcote also star.

“The Assassination of Jesse James” writer/director Andrew Dominik helms from his own script adaptation of the George V. Higgins’ novel. Pitt, Dede Gardner, Steve Schwartz and Paula Mae Schwartz will produce and filming kicks off later this month in New Orleans.
