British actor James Cosmo, who is best known for playing Lord Commander Jeor Mormont on HBO’s hit series ‘Game of Thrones’, has been roped in for a crucial role in Dhanush’s upcoming, untitled Tamil film with director Karthik Subbaraj.

James will reportedly play the antagonist in the film. Subbaraj had originally planned to rope in Al Pacino for the role. Unfortunately, he couldn’t get dates of the ‘Scarface’ actor.

Since the film will be majorly shot in London, Subbaraj decided to rope in mostly international actors and James happens to the most popular among them. The project goes on the floors in London this week. For the next three months, the film will be shot in and around London and a few other places. The makers are yet to reveal rest of the cast and crew.

Dhanush also has Durai Senthil Kumar’s Pataas, which is gearing up for Diwali release. The film features Dhanush in dual roles and co-stars Mehreen Pirzada and Sneha.

In December, Dhanush will work on a fantasy comedy project with director Ramkumar, whose last outing was the critically-acclaimed Ratsasan. Dhanush also has few days of shoot left on Vada Chennai 2 which he hopes to complete by this year end.    —HT
