Casting News: Suicide Squad adds Jay Hernandez & Jerry Lewis joins The Trust

02.19.2015

Come for the SUICIDE SQUAD casting update, stay for the details on an upcoming drama called THE TRUST starring Nicolas Cage, Elijah Wood, and now Jerry Lewis!

Sources have told The Wrap that QUARANTINE and Gang Related star Jay Hernandez is in talks for a mystery role in David Ayer's SUICIDE SQUAD. The site believes Hernandez could be playing an inmate on the same cell block as Jared Leto's The Joker, however they also say there are "several other open roles at this time" as well. With production set to start in a couple of months, the full cast for the comic book movie will likely be officially announced in the next few weeks.

Now on to THE TRUST, which is currently being filmed in Nevada. Ben and Alex Brewer are directing the movie, with Nicolas Cage and Elijah Wood playing a pair of corrupt cops who are stuck working the evidence room of the Las Vegas police department. After one learns about a vault full of cash in the back of a convenience star, both cops team up to try to steal the money. According to Deadline, Jerry Lewis will play the dad of Cage's dirty cop character.

THE TRUST sounds like it could be an entertaining film in a "so bad it's good" sort of way, and Nicolas Cage definitely knows a thing or two about playing a crooked cop, so I am at least a little interested in checking it out .

SUICIDE SQUAD will hit theaters on August 5, 2016 and THE TRUST will probably be released later this year or sometime in 2016.

Wow, I hate to say this but I thought JL died a while ago...

Man, I really didn't think Jerry Lewis was still alive. Good for him but wow he should be in better movies.

Whoops, my bad I just looked up his IMDB page. It looks like he has been in like 3 movies over the past 10 years, all of them trashy direct to video junk and he was only a minor role in like 1 scene.

Tbh though, I never really liked him. I love Nutty Professor but that's about it. He always seemed like a pompous asshole back in the day. Always claiming he invented modern filming

What the hell happened to Elijah Wood?

He was great in LORD OF THE RINGS, and he made a great bad guy in SIN CITY, but his career has since veered into DTV hell. It's a real shame: I was expecting great things from him.

The Trust

It might be unreasonable of me to expect anything from this movie. It's not like these Brewster guys are anyone I've ever heard of. Nor is it like Elijah Wood is hitting some sort of career renaissance, either. But they're both good actors, and Jerry Lewis is a damn legend, so count me as curious how this one turns out.

"several other open roles at this time" - I hope they won't cram in too many characters. As for The Trust, I really hope Nicolas Cage can go back to his bat sh*t crazy policeman like he was in Bad Lieutenant 2.
