The actor will star in GANGSTER SQUAD

Coming off of the acclaimed FX drama Lights Out, Holt McCallany is working on the Walter Hill film HEADSHOT with Sylvester Stallone, but he's also been grabbed for another project.

According to Deadline Hollywood, McCallany will star in Ruben Fleischer’s GANGSTER SQUAD, playing Mickey Cohen’s primary enforcer and bodyguard; Sean Penn is set to play Cohen, while Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, and Anthony Mackie, among others, are on board for other roles in the feature.

McCallany has starred in films such as THE LOSERS, THE PEACEMAKER, and FIGHT CLUB, so he’s no stranger to features with an emphasis in action; even his aforementioned turn in Lights Out was a blend of action and drama, so GANGSTER SQUAD should see him expand his horizons while also staying close to home.
