Oh, you thought Rian Johnson‘s Knives Out was done casting? Think again! The already stacked cast of Johnson’s mystery thriller just added yet another noteworthy name: Christopher Plummer. Like most of the roles in the film, next to nothing is known about who Plummer is playing. But the veteran actor joins a cast that includes Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Lakeith Stanfield, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette and Ana de Armas. More on the Knives Out cast below.

career of jamie lee curtis

(Welcome to Role Call, where we examine two performances from an actor – their first defining role and their most recent/last – to get a sense of who they are.)

Jamie Lee Curtis has always been fascinating because of her contradiction. As the daughter of Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh, she could have been the poster child for Hollywood nepotism, but she became an actor of the people.

Even though she describes her dad as becoming a post-divorce absentee parent when she was really little, and we can’t really quantify these things with a graphing calculator or anything, it’s still no stretch to assume that her mom’s status gave her a foot in the acting door. Advice, guidance, a little nudge. The benefit of being on backlots throughout an entire childhood.

But Curtis didn’t take the royal red carpet path to easy fame. She leaped out of obscurity with a clang and violin screech inside the flimsy, uncertain walls of indie horror. By the time he rounded up a crew for his low budget horror film, John Carpenter had made a low budget sci-fi comedy, a low budget exploitation action flick, and a low budget thriller, so it couldn’t have been clear that Curtis was hitching her wagon to a rocket ship even though the resulting creative relationship was explosive.

Curtis stuck with the genre for years, and has admirably stuck with the Halloween franchise itself even through its most heinous incarnations.

Halloween easter egg

David Gordon Green‘s Halloween broke box office records this past weekend, making it the biggest opening in history for a slasher movie. Michael Myers is back, baby – and speaking of babies, there’s one specific moment in the film involving an infant child that’s dripping with so much suspense that it practically forces audiences to hold their breath.

During a recent interview, Green explained Myers’ decision in that moment, and he also revealed a surprising Halloween easter egg: star Jamie Lee Curtis, who returned to play Laurie Strode, also plays another role in the film – and it’s not who you might think. Read More »
