Anyone who was looking forward to rushing out on opening night to watch Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio in vintage Sears catalogue models realness in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood just realized that everything good comes at a price. And this price of admission now includes Lena Dunham. You wish on a haunted monkey’s paw for Brad Pitt to look hot again, and this is what you get.
The Hollywood Reporter has some new casting news regarding Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Manson Family film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Lena has been cast in an unknown role, and this will be her fist big studio appearance on film (she’s been in movies before, but mostly indies). It will also be her first onscreen role since her show Girls ended in 2017.
Also added to the cast list along side Brad, Leo, Al Pacino, Dakota Fanning, Damian Lewis, James Marsden, Luke Perry, and Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate is Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman’s daughter Maya Hawke (huh, I wonder how she landed that gig). Also former wife of Eli Roth, Lorenza Izzo, and Vanessa Hudgens’ boyfriend Austin Butler.
The movie is still a bit of a secret, so we don’t really know who is playing what, besides Brad, Leo, and Margot. But my guess is Lena might play the only Manson Family member who is specifically asked to leave for talking too damn much and having less of a filter than Charlie.
