Collins storms ‘Castle’

Actor is among 'Tigerland' cast's up-and-comers

Thesp Clifton Collins Jr. (“Traffic”) has nabbed a gig in DreamWorks’ prison drama “The Castle” and has inked with ICM for representation.

Pic, which boasts a cast including Robert Redford, James Gandolfini and Mark Ruffalo (“You Can Count on Me”), revolves around a convicted general (Redford) who is sent to a maximum-security prison where he turns the convicts into his own army. Collins has been cast as an inmate who befriends Redford.

“The Castle,” to be produced by Robert Lawrence and directed by Rod Lurie (“The Contender”), will begin lensing March 22 on location in Nashville. Paul Lister will serve as the production exec for DreamWorks.

Collins is one of the up-and-coming stars to emerge from Joel Schumacher’s “Tigerland,” whose cast includes Colin Farrell, Matthew Davis and Cole Hause. He gained further notice as the hitman Francisco Flores in Steven Soderbergh’s “Traffic.”

His past credits include “The Price of Glory,” “Light It Up” and “187.”
