Watchmen" villain Matthew Goode is bound for the cemetery.
The actor has been cast in "Cemetery Junction," a comedy-drama about 1970s insurance salesmen. It comes from Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the British duo behind "The Office." Gervais will also star.
"Cemetery" takes a period look at a group of twentysomething men working at the Prudential insurance company and their relationships with each other as well as the women in their lives.
Goode will play Mike, a go-getter dating his boss' daughter. The film was previously titled "The Men at the Pru."
Goode, who was last seen on the big screen as icy villain Adrian Veidt in "Watchmen," was recently cast in the romantic comedy "Leap Year" starring Amy Adams.
Gervais and longtime collaborator Merchant wrote the script and will direct. Christian Cooke, Tom Hughes and Jack Doolan had previously been cast to play the three male leads. Ralph Fiennes will also star.
I am looking forward to this. Yay!
