‘Fantastic Four’ Is Close to Finding Its Dr. Doom
The Josh Trank reboot of ‘Fantastic Four‘ has found its foursome with Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell cast as Mr. Fantastic, The Invisible Girl, The Human Torch and The Thing, respectively, which means there’s one last big piece of the puzzle: Dr. Victor von Doom, the quartet’s greatest nemesis. Now it appears it’s down to four actors.
And those four actors (according to The Wrap)? Domhnall Gleeson, Toby Kebbell, Eddie Redmayne and Sam Riley. Gleeson is probably most well known as he played Bill Weasley in the ‘Harry Potter‘ franchise, recently was a lead in ‘About Time,’ and is currently in the festival hit ‘Frank.’ Toby Kebbell is the most “that guy” of the group as he had a lot of supporting performances recently, appearing in films like ‘The Counselor‘ and ‘Wrath of the Titans.’ He also got a role in the upcoming ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.’
Redmayne is the most Teen Beat of the group, and was one of the leads in 2012′s ‘Les Miserables,’ and will be seen shortly in The Wachowskis‘ ‘Jupiter Ascending.’ Riley broke through with his performance as Joy Division’s lead singer Ian Curtis in the biopic ‘Control,’ was in ‘On the Road,’ and will be seen soon in ‘Maleficent.’ With the rest of the main cast assembled, we wouldn’t be surprised if the final casting decision is made shortly.
‘Fantastic Four’ is scheduled to hit theaters June 19, 2015.
