More Casting News! Jane Adams Cast in Gil Kenan's POLTERGEIST
Gil Kenan has added another face to the roster for his reboot of the 1980's mega-classic Poltergeist. Jane Adams, best known for her role as the frizzy haired pimp in HBO's short-lived Hung, has been cast in the MGM and Fox 2000 reboot.
She will be playing a parapsychologist that is enlisted by the family to help identify the spooky spirits and what they want with them in their home. The role was originally played by Beatrice Straight in the original, so no, she's not taking Zelda Rubinstein's part (if that's what you were thinking).
Gil Kenan (Monster House) is directing, while the cast already boasts Sam Rockwell (Iron Man 2, The Green Mile), Rosemarie DeWitt (Your Sister's Sister) and Jared Harris (AMC's Mad Men, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button).
