David Strathairn has just signed on to Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla reboot rounding out an impressive cast including Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Olsen.
Godzilla isn’t the first large and imposing figure Strathairn has worked with – you may remember him as the diabolical congressman William Seward in Lincoln.
No word on character descriptions yet, but Straithairn is rumored to be “playing a military figure.” Makes sense in a Godzilla movie. The script was written by Max Borenstein, Frank Darabont, and Dave Callaham. Plot details are also being withheld, but it’s not a leap to guess that a giant prehistoric creature is threatening the earth and it’s going to take some serious military might to bring him down.
