Alfre Woodard & Lupita Nyong'o Set for Twelve Years A Slave
Quote:
Alfre Woodard will join the cast of Twelve Years a Slave, the New Regency film being produced by Plan B and River Road. The film is being directed by Steve McQueen (Shame, Hunger) and stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender.

Woodard will play Mistress Shaw, a former slave who has risen in the Southern caste system. Lupita Nyong'o also is joining the cast and will play a slave who is the object of both the affections and cruelty of Master Epps (Fassbender).

Damn this s--t sounds deep.

Will be interesting how audiences respond to these themes being honestly expressed.

I've lost count on how many good actors has joined the film now.

Just when I thought the cast couldn't get any better. McQueen has assembled a wildly impressive cast.

Great to have an up-and-coming actor added to the star-studded cast. Ever since reports out of Sundance have been praising Beasts of the Southern Wild, I've been looking forward to it.

Looking good! I just saw hunger a few weeks ago and I think it's one of the best films I've ever seen. I also saw shame which really stuck with me and creeped me out so I'm fairly certain ill be ready to be unready when I see this

My first reaction after watching the trailer: "Hans Zimmer was all over that."

It's just too hard to dislike Michael Fassbender.

He should stick to playing good guys.

Even Magneto is more of an anti-hero than a villain.

But I'm a little disappointed in the trailer to be honest. I expected something more realistic. This thing lays on the black and white caricatures pretty thick.

It must be a written law that any role Paul Dano takes outside of quirky Indy comedies has to be that of an obnoxious douche bag.
