The last time we saw Kyle Chandler on the big screen was in J.J. Abrams SUPER 8. Currently he is in the middle of filming on Ben Affleck's next directorial effort, ARGO. I never really jumped on the FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS bandwagon but Chandler is definitely an actor that I look forward to seeing when I hear that he is attached to a project.

The actor will be joining the cast of Allen Hughes' political thriller BROKEN CITY. In the film, Mark Wahlberg stars as, "a Gotham detective hired by a powerful politician (Russell Crowe) to identify his wife's lover, who is subsequently found and killed. Barry Pepper co-stars as a mayoral candidate, while Chandler will play the nuts and bolts component of his political team."

Catherine Zeta-Jones, Jeffrey Wright, Griffin Dunne, James Ransone, Justin Chambers, Natalie Martinez and Alona Tal also star in the film which is set to release on January 18, 2013.

Love Chandler, nice to see him getting more roles. My impressions of him seem to be a cool down to earth kind of guy that you could have an actual conversation with. He was awesome in Friday Night Lights and was good in Super 8 but should have had more screen time.

My own little tidbit: Am I the only one that thought Super 8 started out as a great teen coming of age story with a creature backdrop but turned into a so so full blown godzilla movie?

I had the same reaction, so I looked it up:

"Gotham: a journalistic nickname for New York City."

He's a great underrated actor. Hav enjoyed him in everything from King Kong to Friday Night Lights to The Day The Earth Stood Still to Super 8.

I love Chandler. Classically bland good looks, sort of that Golden Era of Hollywood feel to him visually. But his acting, his range and his presence are all fantastic. Really looking forward to this dude blowing up.
