Laura Dern Also Cast In ‘The Master'

Whoops, looks like we (and most other sites) skimmed right over this little nugget of casting info. According to the same Variety article posted earlier today, actress Laura Dern has also joined the film (presumably) as Hoffman's character's wife.
Joaquin Phoenix and Laura Dern co-star, with the former playing an alcoholic drifter who becomes his right-hand man and disciple.
Though the article states this as a fact, this is the first official confirmation we're hearing about Dern joining the film. The last time the actress was mentioned for the role was about a month ago and that was still speculation amongst several other names for the wife/daughter roles (Amy Adams, Lena Endre, and Madisen Beaty). But great news nonetheless as anyone who saw Dern's stellar performance in David Lynch's "Inland Empire" can attest.

That's all for today (we think). Carry on.

And stay tuned to Cigarettes & Red Vines on Twitter and Facebook for the latest news and updates.
