The awesome Michael K. Williams (Boardwalk Empire) has joined the cast of Captive.
The hostage thriller stars the equally reliable David Oyelowo as a murderer who finds refuge in the apartment of his hostage, played by Kate Mara. When the latter starts to talk about her faith in God, her love for her daughter and the book A Purpose Driven Life to her captor, the hostage drama takes an unlikely turn.
According to Deadline, Williams will play the lead detective who investigates the case. Ever since I beheld the wondrous things the actor did on The Wire, like so many others, I’ve become a big fan of his work and would literally watch anything he does.
I would actually dare you: cast him in Twilight 17, Percy Jackson and the Pink Unicorn, I'll watch it!
With an already pretty great cast and interesting sounding premise, Captive does look vastly superior to those nightmare scenarios, though.
