Garret Dillahunt lands roles in LOOPER and COGAN’S TRADE

It looks like Andrew Dominik's COGAN'S TRADE is turning into a reunion of sorts, as he's slowly gathering up cast members from his last film, THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD, to join his latest. The film is already being toplined by Brad Pitt (with lots of mumbles about Casey Affleck also joining the film which, sadly, never came to be), and now Garret Dillahunt is on board. Dillahunt himself says that his part in COGAN's is just "a cameo," but any bit that mixes up the magic of JESSE JAMES in a new film is more than fine by me.

Dillahunt has also booked a role in Rian Johnson's LOOPER, where The Playlist has done some digging and believe that "the actor’s playing the role of Jesse, an antagonist who crops up in the final act of the picture." Dillahunt as a possible baddie? That's just icing on the cake of Johnson's Joseph Gordon-Levitt-starring LOOPER.

Dillahunt's resume is wide and varied - television fans might be familiar with his latest regular role on Fox's Raising Hope, but I like Dillahunt when he's down and dirty, not just flimsy and funny, and his film resume is filled with work like that. From his JESSE JAMES role, to work in NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN and WINTER'S BONE, to even heavier stuff in THE ROAD and THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT remake, few people can pull off scary and appealing at the same time quite like Dillahunt.

Both films are slated to release in 2012.
