With both Armie Hammer and Jesse Eisenberg nabbing up new roles, it's about time that fellow SOCIAL NETWORK star Max Minghella gets some much deserved work.

According to Deadline, Minghella and actor Jeffrey Wright (hat tip to Daily Mail for the latter) have both joined the cast of George Clooney’s upcoming drama, THE IDES OF MARCH. The film, Clooney’s take on the play Farragut North, sees Ryan Gosling as a campaign press secretary for a presidential hopeful, and has a cast rounded out by Clooney, Paul Giamatti, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Marisa Tomei, and Evan Rachel Wood. Talk about one hell of a cast.

Personally, I think Max Minghella has always been an interesting actor. Seen twice this year in both THE SOCIAL NETWORK and the underseen (and underwhelming) Alejandro Amenabar film AGORA, the actor has proven himself to be a relatively compelling up-and-coming actor. Not quite the strongest performer in TSN, he does give a rather interesting performance, but is ultimately overshadowed by a tour-de-force performance from Hammer. Hopefully this will let him shine a little bit more.

And how do you get better than Jeffrey Wright? You don’t.

What do you think?
