John Hawkes Cast in ‘Surrogate’

16 March 2011 6:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The last couple years have been good for John Hawkes. A career of smallish roles and a few very notable attention-getting turns (a notable Deadwood character, the lead in Me and You and Everyone We Know) led to Easbound and Down. With a raised his profile the actor ended up in the excellent film Winter's Bone, for which he was nominated for an Oscar. While he didn't win, that's a pretty huge step for a guy who audiences might not have recognized on the street just a few years ago. He's got a role in the Sundance fave Martha Marcy May Marlene, has shot a part in Steven Soderbergh's Contagion and is now staying indie with the drama Surrogate, based on the life of poet and journalist Mark O'Brien. We don't specifically know what role John Hawkes has, though it could be the lead in the film written and directed by Ben Lewin. »
