Charles Dutton, Aldis Hodge and Kathy Baker have joined the cast of Midnight Rider, the Gregg Allman biopic being made by Unclaimed Freight Productions’ Randall Miller and Jody Savin.
The trio join a production that sees Tyson Ritter and William Hurt portraying Allman young and old, respectively, while Wyatt Russell will play brother Duane Allman.
Eliza Dushku, Bradley Whitford, Joel David Moore, Zoey Deutch and Chad Lindberg are also already cast.
The movie is telling two stories: Gregg Allman’s journey from struggling artist through the formation and subsequent success of The Allman Brothers Band, which saw the musician succumb to the excesses of rock and roll; and Gregg Allman’s realization at 64 that he has to get clean for good or risk losing his life.
Dutton (TV’s Longmire) will play Chank Middleton, Gregg’s best friend, confidant and assistant with Hodge (TV’s Leverage) playing a younger version of the man.
Baker, last seen in Saving Mr. Banks, is playing the Allmans’ mother.
Shooting will begin Feb. 24 in Savannah, Ga., at Meddin Studios with Miller behind the camera. (Savin and Miller wrote the script and are producing.)
Open Road Films is releasing the film domestically while The Exchange is handling international sales.

Amazon Studios’ pilot “The After,” which marks “The X Files” creator Chris Carter’s return to TV, has just added “Leverage” actor Aldis Hodge to the cast.
In what would be the first hour-long series from Amazon Studios, Hodge will be playing Irie Love, a 36-year-old escaped convict, who proclaims he’s an innocent man who was railroaded.
Written and directed by Carter, “The After” takes place at the moment of apocalypse. Also starring are Jamie Kennedy, who plays a professional clown; and “Heroes” star Adrian Pasdar, who will play a successful Beverly Hills businessman. Georgeville, the company of Marc Rosen and Reliance’s Motion Picture Capital, is producing the series.
Hodge has co-starred in NBC’s pilot ”The Sixth Gun” this past season.

It’s been eleven years since “The X-Files” ended its run, and creator Chris Carter is finally returning to television with his pilot “The After,” starring “Leverage” actor Aldis Hodge, Adrian Pasdar and Jamie Kennedy.
Per Deadline, the thriller from Amazon Studios, written and to be directed by Carter, takes place at the moment of apocalypse, which is quite familiar territory for someone that wrote about an alien invasion for nine years. Hodge will play an escaped convict who claims he was tricked into committing a crime, while Pasdar and Kennedy play a successful Beverly Hills businessman and professional clown, respectively.
Hodge is best known for starring as Alec Hardison on the USA Network hit series “Leverage” and in a recurring role on “Friday Night Lights.” He also recently appeared opposite Brit Marling and Alexander Skarsgård in “The East.”

Because The Sixth Gun Deserves a “Shot”…
Oni Press publishes one of the best comic books on the shelves–The Sixth Gun. Written by Cullen Bunn, drawn by Brian Hurtt, and colored by Bill Crabtree, this comic book explores a fantastic world set in the old west, in which six pistols possess dark powers.
Nominated for two Eisner Awards and three Harvey Awards, The Sixth Gun has built loyal fans and has received widespread critical acclaim. NBC ordered a pilot based on the popular series, but then passed on the show, which was being developed for primetime by the great Carlton Cuse (executive producer and screenwriter for the television series Lost). The Sixth Gun already has a fantastic cast, a wonderful script, but needs a new home!
Let’s help The Sixth Gun get the attention of TV executives. Sign this petition and show just how much we want this comic book to come to life!

Don’t forget to follow their pages:
Fans of Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt’s Oni Press comic book series The Sixth Gun will be disappointed to hear that NBC has opted against picking up the show for a full season order, with Deadline revealing that the network has passed on the pilot, which has been executive produced by Carlton Cuse (Lost).
According to Deadline’s report, reaction towards the pilot “started off strong but lost steam as the pilot season progressed,” while the network has also chosen to pass on several other pilots, including Bloodline, The Gates, Joe, Joe and Jane, Holding Patterns, The Secret Lives of Husbands and Wives, The Gates and Hatfields & McCoys.
With The Sixth Gun failing to make it to series, The CW’s hit superhero show Arrow could still be joined by another comic book adaptation in the Fall, with ABC likely to make a decision on Joss Whedon’s Avengers spin-off Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the coming days. The Hollywood Reporter has pegged the Marvel adaptation as the third most likely pilot to be picked up, behind CBS’ Beverly Hills Cop and Chuck Lorre’s new CBS sitcom Mom.

The merger was voted on by members of both unions so that the pool of acting talent can come from one joint union which is now SAG/AFTRA.
