Boardwalk Empire's Shea Whigham Joins Silver Linings Playbook

Now that Shea Whigham was wrapped filming on the second season of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, he’s free to pursue big-screen gigs for his hiatus, and word has reached us that he’s attaching his name to an anticipated drama. Whigham reportedly will join Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro in David O. Russell’s The Silver Lining Playbook, according to Deadline. The site doesn’t mention which part Whigham will play, though Russell’s supporting cast is loaded with similar heavyweights, from Julia Stiles and Chris Tucker to Animal Kingdom Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver.
