The talent involved in David O. Russell’s untitled Abscam project has swollen to such epic proportions in recent months with Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, Amy Adams, and Louis C. K. and it just keep growing. The latest actress to be cast, Elisabeth Rohm is probably most well known for her stint in the D.A.'s office on "Law & Order," and was last seen in the thriller “Transit.”

A couple quick actress additions to new projects, so let's dive in...

The talent involved in David O. Russell’s untitled Abscam project has swollen to such epic proportions in recent months with Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, Amy Adams, and Louis C. K. and it just keeps growing. The latest actress to be cast, Elisabeth Rohm, is probably most well known for her stint in the D.A.'s office on "Law & Order," and was last seen in the thriller “Transit.” She'll be playing the wife of Renner’s character, the leader of the New Jersey state assembly at the epicenter of an investigation into corruption, according to Variety. Producer Megan Ellison tweeted that principal photography began Sunday, so breathe easy -- this film is really happening.  


Meanwhile, THR reports that Kate Beckinsale is in negotiations to star in the creepy psychological thriller “Eliza Graves,” as the titular character and love interest, who happens to be a mental patient in a hospital where the residents have overthrown the staff and are posing as doctors. The script, to be directed by Brad Anderson (“The Machinist”), is based on an 1845 short story by Edgar Allan Poe. While Beckinsale has mainly been known for action fare such as the “Underworld” franchise and “Total Recall” as of late, she seems like she has the chops to pull off a crazy-in-disguise woman, though it’s hard to pin down what the tone of this project might be. More “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest” or “American Horror Story: Asylum”? We’ll see how the rest of casting shapes up. [THR]
