Before we talk about Jeffrey Dean Morgan's casting in Solace, I'd like to put in a plug for Magic City. If you want to see Morgan at the top of his game, check out that Starz series. And now back to the Solace news... Morgan has landed a role in the supernatural thriller to be directed by Afonso Poyart.
Morgan will be joining already announced cast members Colin Farrell and Sir Anthony Hopkins in the project set up at New Line.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Morgan will be playing an FBI agent who leads the "investigation into a series of grisly murders." Hopkins will play a psychic doctor while Farrell is set to play the killer (who is also psychic).
Most recently, Morgan (who's one of my favorite people to interview) was seen starring in the horror film The Possession and playing a supporting role in the remake of Red Dawn.
