Corrigan reteams with Crowe on ‘Winter’s Tale’

'American Gangster' thesp joins Warner Bros.' crime drama

Veteran character actor Kevin Corrigan is set to reunite with his “American Gangster” co-star Russell Crowe on Akiva Goldsman’s directorial debut “Winter’s Tale,” which is based on the novel by Mark Helprin.

The Warner Bros. drama stars Colin Farrell as a thief who breaks into a dying young woman’s home and ends up falling for her. “Downton Abbey” thesp Jessica Brown Findlay co-stars alongside William Hurt, Jennifer Connelly, Matt Bomer, Eva Marie Saint and Will Smith, who will cameo as a judge.

Crowe plays Pearly Soames, a ruthless, violent criminal who serves as the leader of the Short Tail gang pursuing the protag. Corrigan will play the key supporting role of Romeo Tan, Pearly’s no-nonsense right-hand who enforces his boss’ rule over New York City in 1916 and is put in charge of tracking down Farrell’s character.

Corrigan, who also worked with Crowe on Paul Haggis’ 2010 thriller “The Next Three Days,” recently appeared in “Seven Psychopaths,” “The Dictator” and Atlas Independent’s “Revenge for Jolly!” Thesp, whose past feature credits include “Goodfellas” and “The Departed,” will soon be seen in a recurring role on the hit CBS series “The Mentalist.”

Corrigan is repped by Innovative Artists and manager Michael Lazo of Untitled Entertainment.
