Cinema Blend report this morning that the brilliant Benicio Del Toro is in talks for IV…… Wow…. Dreams really can come true then?!
The Wrap has learned that Academy Award-winner Benicio Del Toro is now in active discussions to join the cast of Inherent Vice. A detective story set in 1970, the story centers on a pothead private eye named Doc Sportello (Phoenix) who starts investigating a kidnapping case involving a lost girl. Should Del Toro sign on he will play a friend of Doc’s who is “always trying to help the protagonist out of trouble.” The trade notes that it’s not a critical role in the movie, but that it has scene-stealer potential.
What is there to talk about? Just say yes Benicio!
