Just after Anton Yelchin and Imogen Poots were cast to lead Blue Ruin director Jeremy Saulnier's next colorful thriller Green Room, one more cast member has been added into the mix, and it should make this one of your most anticipated films ever. A press release from Broad Green Pictures and Filmscience announced that "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and X-Men franchise star Patrick Stewart has joined the thriller which follows a young punk rock band who find themselves trapped in a secluded venue after stumbling upon a horrific act of violence, fighting for their lives against a gang of white power skinheads.
So who will Stewart play? Well, he'll have the role of Darcy Banker, the unflinching and industrial leader of a ferocious white supremacist fiefdom based in the Pacific Northwest. Just imagining Stewart in this role gives me goosebumps. As we previously reported, the film also stars Alia Shawkat, Joe Cole, Callum Turner, Mark Webber, Kai Lennox, Eric Edelstein and Blue Ruin lead Macon Blair. This is quickly becoming a highly anticipated film, and we can't wait to see how Stewart looks in the film already shooting in Portland.
