There comes a time in every comedic actor’s career when he feels the need to “prove” himself by tackling more serious roles, but the pigeonholing occasionally works in reverse as well. Sometimes, an actor is so associated with heavier parts that the most surprising thing he can do is sign up for something really goofy.
Few would deny Clive Owen‘s dramatic chops, but now the thespian seems ready to really stretch himself in what sounds like a full-on comedy. He’s just signed on for The King of the Castle, written and directed by, of all people, The Sitter scribes Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka. Talk about an unexpected match-up. More details after the jump.
