 Derek Cianfrance's been collecting quite a solid cast for his next project, the "Deer Hunter meets The Godfather" crime drama The Place Beyond the Pines. Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, and Eva Mendes are already on board, with Greta Gerwig circling  another part. Now the latest addition to his cast is Aussie actor Ben Mendelsohn, who along with Joel Edgerton and Jacki Weaver has been enjoying a nice (and well-deserved) career boost from the success of last year's Animal Kingdom. The Place Beyond the Pines focuses on a multi-generational feud sparked by an encounter between Gosling’s character, a pro motorcycle rider who turns to bank robbing to support his family, and Cooper’s character, a cop. Mendes will co-star as Gosling's love interest, while Gerwig is up for the role of Cooper's wife. Mendelsohn is in negotiations to play Robin Van Der Zee, a mechanic who pulls Gosling into his bank robbery operation. »

He uses his conciliatory skills to ingratiate himself with each particular family member before Mike returns from college.
