Ribisi added to Rum

Mar. 23, 2009by: Daniel Barna

Giovanni Ribisi may not be the most versatile actor out there, but I've always enjoyed watching him nonetheless. Which is why I am excited to hear that he has joined the highly anticipated THE RUM DIARY, the Hunter S. Thompson adaptation starring Johnny Depp, Aaron Eckhart, and Amber Heard. Ribisi will play a sleazy journalist in the tale that follows Paul Kemp, a freelance reporter writing for a decrepit newspaper in 1950s Puerto Rico who is surrounded by a bunch of lost souls bent on their own self-destruction. Sounds oddly similar to this year's Montreal Canadians, except that in the novel, the characters have a slight glimmer of redemption and hope, whereas the Habs do not.
Extra Tidbit: Giovanni Ribisi's BOILER ROOM is a wicked movie. See it if you haven't.

This movie is going to be awesome! The fact that Depp and Thompson were such great friends guarantees that it won't be anything less.

Oh man

This cast just keeps getting better. I've liked most of this guys roles, one in particular I can't remember the title, I think it was The Gift as mentioned previously. This was one of the best books I'd read in awhile, glad it's getting done well.

Yeamon!

My money's on him being cast as Yeamon. I can totally see him pulling that role off.

Although, as long as Depp is still Kemp, I'm happy with it.
Hopefully they'll start filming it soon,
feels like I've been reading about/anticipating this movie for over a decade.

I thought he was superb in Saving Private Ryan. Though, even Vin Diesel was good in that movie.

Don't worry the Habs will be back in it next year when they trade for Lecavalier. (E1)

Sure, maybe he's not the MOST versatile, but Ribisi's no slouch at acting, either.
