‘Neon Demon’s’ Alessandro Nivola Joins Joaquin Phoenix’s ‘You Were Never Really Here’

Alessandro Nivola is set to join Joaquin Phoenix in Lynne Ramsay’s “You Were Never Really Here.” He has also nabbed a co-starring role opposite Juno Temple in Liz Garcia’s “One Percent More Humid.”

Based on the Jonathan Ames novel, the story follows Albert Votto (Nivola), a New York politician who finds himself at the center of a sinister web of organized crime. Ramsay will write and direct the film, which Amazon Studios is financing and distributing, and Page 114 is producing.

Nivola plays Gerald McCann in “One Percent More Humid,” a literature professor who has an affair with a grieving student (Temple). Julia Garner and Olivia Luccardi are also set to star.

Garcia is writing and directing, as well as producing, along with Joshua Harto.

Nivola was recently nominated for a Tony Award for his performance opposite Bradley Cooper in “The Elephant Man” on Broadway. Upcoming films include Barry Levinson’s Bernie Madoff drama “The Wizard of Lies” with Robert De Niro, and Jaron Albertin’s indie “Weightless.”

Nivola can currently be seen in Nicolas Winding Refn’s “The Neon Demon.”

He is represented by CAA and Management 360.
