Danny Huston is now in talks to join the cast, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Huston’s latest claim to fame has been his Golden Globe-nominated performance as the unrelenting sociopathic mob boss Ben Diamond on Starz’s Magic City.
Christoph Waltz and Amy Adams are portraying Walter and Margaret Keane, who rose to prominence in the art world and mainstream for popular paintings of big-eyed children in the 1950s and ’60s. Huston will play a burnt-out, heavy-drinking gossip reporter.
The drama, with a script by Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander, centers on a decades-long dispute between the two after their 1965 divorce over who actually painted the pictures.
