Veteran character actor Edward James Olmos is set to join the cast of Baltasar Kormakur's "Two Guns." The film sees two of the biggest action stars Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington unite as two lawmen—a DEA agent and a NAVY Seal—who investigate each other as each have been tasked to steal mob money, with James to play Papi Greco, a Mexcian drug lord the two leads run into to. Scribe Blake Masters adapted the story from Steven Grant's graphic novel of the same name with Bill Paxton and Paula Patton also co-starring as a CIA operative and Washington's love interest, respectively.

With lensing on "Behind The Candelabra" set to begin very soon, Steven Soderbergh has turned to a former piece of left field casting by reteaming with his "The Informant!" co-star Tom Papa. The comedian, who has since taken on hosting duties for the Jerry Seinfeld-shepherded reality show "The Marriage Ref," was one of many intersting casting choices in Soderbergh's 2009 whistle-blower comedy including Scott Bakula, Patton Oswalt, Thomas F. Wilson and eventual "Community" star Joel McHale. He'll now play Liberace's long time pal, Ray Arnett, in the HBO film starring Michael Douglas as the singer and Matt Damon as his lover. [Deadline]

"The Lucky One" star Taylor Schilling will star opposite Aidan Quinn in Wiebke von Carolsfeld's indie-drama "Stay." The actress will play a woman who gets pregnant but, after learning that the father has no interest in keeping the baby, returns home to her father in Canada to figure out the next move. Schilling will next be seen in "Argo" this October as Ben Affleck's wife. [THR]
