'Ready Player One' Adaptation Eyeing Ben Mendelsohn For Villain Role
By Matt O'Bryant
Recently nominated Golden Globe Actor Ben Mendelsohn is being eyed for the villain role in Steven Spielberg's adaptation of the New York Times Best Seller Ready Player One. This could be genius casting folks! And like I said in an article a few days ago, Mendelsohn is amazing! If you don't understand my excitement for him to play a role in any film check out his amazing show Bloodline on Netflix, or any of his work in films like Animal Kingdom or even this year's small independent film Mississippi Grind with Ryan Reynolds. This guy is an incredible force on screen and he is one of my favorite actors working today. Couldn't be happier about this news. Check out the full article from THR below, and the synopsis from the book.
