John Magaro Joins David Michôd’s “War Machine”


David seems to be slowly putting together  a group of actors from some of my favourite shows.  Coincidence I know, but still.  John Magaro, who you might recall married fellow Aussie Yael Stone’s character “Lorna Morello” in the final episode of Orange Is The New Black joins the cast according to Deadline:

Exclusive: The Graveyard of Empires has a new plot, as Not Fade Away‘s John Magaro has signed on to Netflix’s Plan B-produced black comedy War Machine. Based on Michael Hasting’s best selling nonfiction book The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan, the film takes a satirical look at America’s decade-plus long military effort in the war-torn nation and the continent-sized egos of the people running it. Magaro will play Cory Burger, a special ops soldier and close advisor to General McMahon (Brad Pitt), the film’s stand-in for General Stanley McChrystal. Written and directed by David Michod, Pitt produces along with Plan B partners Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner, in association with Ian Bryce.” [My emphasis]
