Gary blue toned portrait

Casting news is always fun.

No one will care about this but me (and possibly ilovehulajosh)...but that's totally cool. I'm posting anyway! ;-)

Gary Oldman is set to star as James Connolly in a new movie about Ireland's 1916 Easter Rising. The film is titled Easter Sixteen, and Irish actor Jason Barry will make his directorial debut. Filming is scheduled to start in Dublin in April 2010.

A link to the press release is here at the Irish Film & Television Network. And here is an article from the Evening Herald (which says basically the same thing).
