Richard Jenkins has joined the cast of Andrew Dominik’s crime caper “Cogan’s Trade.”
Brad Pitt stars as a professional enforcer who investigates a heist that takes place during a high-stakes poker game held under the protection of the mob.
Jenkins (“The Visitor”) will play a lawyer who relays inside information about the card game.
Sam Rockwell, James Gandolfini and Bella Heathcote co-star in the film, which starts shooting later this month in New Orleans.
Jenkins recently starred in “Eat Pray Love” and “Let Me In.” The Oscar-nominated actor will next be seen in the comedies “Hall Pass” and “Friends With Benefits.”
He is represented by The Gersh Agency and Bill Treusch Management.
