Aaron Johnson and Mia Wasikowska sign up for Albert Knobbs

Dec. 7, 2010by:

After starring in KICK-ASS and ALICE IN WONDERLAND respectively, Aaron Johnson and Mia Wasikowska have been hot properties, linked to ton of projects since those films came out. But now one movie has landed them both.

That would be Glen Close's period piece ALBERT NOBBS, the story of a woman who dressed like a man in 19th century Ireland in order to survive. How wacky!

Johnson is stepping in for Orlando Bloom, who I can't remember seeing onscreen in like the last five years, and Wasikowska (my new least favorite name to spell) is subbing for Amanda Seyfried, who is a very busy girl these days.

The film also stars Close and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers who will bring a cold stare of intensity to the proceedings. No word on a start date, but with a cast assembled it should be soon. 

Extra Tidbit: If I could have any accent, it would be Irish.

I hate both of them

She's too earnest and has no range and he just comes off as an arrogant, cocky douche, even in a role like Kick-Ass where he's supposed to be dorky.

I'm a huge Wasikowska fan, so I'll see this.

Yeah, she was amazing in The Kids Are All Right. Jane Eyre also looks great. I have high hopes for her career.

I like everybody in the cast and love Irish settings. Ireland's a beautiful country to see and hopefully this takes advantage of it like The Wind That Shakes The Barley was able to. Plot seems pretty basic but I'm still excited.

Movie sounds promising. Like the cast, except for Johnson. Think he is a shitty actor and was the worst part of "Kick Ass".

Tidbit, I would also want an Irish accent. Or British.

I agree he had some issues in Kick-ass, which was in my opinion due to his poor american accent. I think he could do quite well in a film like this, but we'll all have to wait and see.

I agree. He is a shitty actor who grates on me. She grates on me, too, though. She's good at playing one character and it's not a character I like.
