If 2011 saw Joel Edgerton getting his feet wet in Hollywood with roles in "Warrior" and "The Thing," 2012 will see the Aussie actor fully diving into those waters. He'll feature prominently in two films slated to be major awards season players, Baz Luhrmann's 3D adaptation of "The Great Gatsby" and Kathryn Bigelow's untitled Osama Bin Laden/Seal Team 6 pic. And not only that, he's giving family films a try, starring opposite Jennifer Garner in Disney's "The Odd Life Of Timothy Green." But Edgerton isn't content to wait for opportunities to fall into his lap, and just before he headed to Sundance to premiere his latest Aussie effort "Wish You Were Here," he sold a script to New Regency titled "One Night Stand."
