Paul Giamatti, Garret Dillahunt & Sarah Paulson Join '12 Years A Slave'

Update: Variety adds that Paul Giamatti and Sarah Paulson have also joined the film. Giamatti will play Freeman who "takes possession of the slaves upon their arrival in New Orleans" while Paulson will be Michael Fassbender's jealous wife.

There are few actors in Hollywood with the clout of Brad Pitt to ensure they line up with top talent for each outing, and if you're able to impress the actor and producer, all the better. That seems to be the case of the excellent character actor Garret Dillahunt, who first starred opposite Pitt as the dim Ed Miller in "The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford." He recently landed a small part in Andrew Dominik's furious "Killing Them Softly" and while he didn't make the final cut, Pitt wants his talent yet again.

Garret Dillahunt Says First Cut Of 'Killing Them Softly' Was 2.5 Hours, Not Sure If He Made The Final Edit

25 April 2012 9:41 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Director Andrew Dominik is no stranger to long first cuts. As anyone who followed the tortured post-production on the director's contemporary classic "The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford" knows, the director battled Warner Bros. over the length and tone of the movie, and numerous editors were brought in to try and cut down a film that reportedly originally ran more than three hours. Regardless, the resulting film was magnificent and Pitt remained one of the director's biggest supporters. They reteamed for "Cogan's Trade," which was recently retitled "Killing Them Softly," and it looks like the director had a lot of material to work with once again.

Garret Dillahunt, who played the simple Ed Miller in 'Jesse James,' is part of the large ensemble rounded up for "Killing Them Softly," but he reveals that his part was relatively minor and may not have survived the editing room. »
