Thesp joins Coen bros.' folk-music pic

Stage veteran Jeanine Serralles, who previously appeared in James Gray’s “Two Lovers” and Julie Taymor’s “Across the Universe,” has joined the cast of Joel and Ethan Coen’s folk music pic “Inside Llewyn Davis.”

Set amid the 1960s Greenwich Village folk music scene, story follows a protagonist loosely based on singer Dave Van Ronk, a friend of Bob Dylan’s, and other famous musicians.

Oscar Isaac (“Drive,” “Sucker Punch”) stars as the title character, a struggling musician from Queens who, despite being a talented singer and guitarist, can’t make ends meet.

Justin Timberlake co-stars as another folk musician, while his wife will be played by Carey Mulligan, who shows off her vocal chops singing “New York, New York” in Steve McQueen’s “Shame.”

John Goodman is set to play a jazz musician who takes a road trip with the protag, while “Amadeus” star F. Murray Abraham is circling the role of Bud Grossman, a legendary manager. Abraham previously starred in Ethan Coen’s off-Broadway show “Almost an Evening.”

StudioCanal is set to co-finance the Scott Rudin-produced pic, which will be made without a domestic distribution partner. Robert Graf (“True Grit”) is exec producing and production is skedded for early next year in Gotham.

Serrales, who trained at the Yale School of Drama and recently appeared on CBS’ “The Good Wife,” is repped by Don Buchwald & Associates. Abraham is repped by Innovative Artists and Untitled Entertainment.
