'Suicide Kings' thesp to star in Rooke novel

Henry Thomas, who appeared in the recent USA Network success “Moby Dick” and is in the current Live Entertainment release “Suicide Kings,” has been cast to star in the indie adaptation of the Leon Rooke novel “A Good Baby.”

Thomas portrays a recluse who finds a home for an abandoned baby in this Southern tale set in a small Appalachian community. He stars with David Strathairn (“L.A. Confidential,” “Dolores Claiborne”) and Jennifer Ehle (“Pride & Prejudice,” “Paradise Road”).

Pic is directed by Katherine Dieckmann, who developed the film at the 1996 Sundance Screenwriters and Directors Lab, and produced by Tom Carouso. Production began two weeks ago and is expected to wrap in mid-May.

Thomas’ other credits include “Legends of the Fall,” “Valmont,” “Indictment: The McMartin Trial” and “Niagara, Niagara.” Thomas is repped by Tracy Brennan and Ben Press at International Creative Management.
