A Serious Man- star Michael Stuhlbarg, known to Boardwalk Empire aficionados as Arnold Rothman, has joined the cast of Pawn Sacrifice.

The cold war thriller centers on the legendary chess duel between the seemingly unbeatable Soviet master Boris Spassky (Liev Schreiber) and eccentric up-and-coming U.S. champion Bobby Fischer (Tobey Maguire) which entered history books as the "Match of the Century."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Stuhlbarg will play Fischer’s advisor and attorney.

Peter Sarsgard and Lily Rabe also co-star, Edward Zwick (The Last Samurai) directs.
