First Look At Supporting Cast: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Marisa Tomei, Max Minghella & Evan Rachel Wood



Hot off the film's inclusion in the TIFF line up and the new look at Ryan Gosling, the marketing for George Clooney's upcoming political thriller "The Ides Of March" is now kicking into gear with the unveiling of a new aesthetically attractive poster and a handful of images providing first look at many of the supporting including Philip Seymour Hoffman, Marisa Tomei, Max Minghella, Jeffrey Wright and Evan Rachel Wood.

Clooney has also taken to discussing his adaptation of Beau Willimon's play noting that ”the major issues (of the movie) are some of the major issues we face every day including questions of morality. We’re not trying to be polarizing, [in fact] this could have taken place in a lawyer’s office. It’s just more fun in the political arena...but it’s more about process than platform.”

Clooney added that he had planned to make the movie back in 2008 but delayed the production as the nation was in too hopeful a mood “for a cynical political movie. Now the cynicsm seems to have come back.” It's not all about the politics but with the actor-director adding that the core of the story is probably "less about politics than human 'mistakes and flaws'" while co-writer and Clooney's Smokehouse Pictures partner Grant Heslov called the movie "a portrait of a political hopeful 'who drank the Kool-Aid.'"

As a bit of a mover and shaker himself, though, how will Clooney's political constituents take this piece of work? "Republicans hate the beginning of the movie, the Democrats hate the end. So we’re good,” Clooney joked, referencing screenings he's already organised. “You can’t make people do what they don’t want to do. You make your best movie and hope people catch up with it.”

"Ides Of March" hits theaters on October 7th and, of course, will open the Venice Film Festival and screen at TIFF. [USAToday/E!]
