Casting for the Cbgb biopic has resulted in some interesting choices, and the names just keep on coming. The film found its most recent addition in Donal Logue, a character actor and occasional leading man who’s notable for his work on the short-lived, well-loved FX series, Terriers. Logue will play Merv Ferguson, the man who helped owner Hilly Kristal (Alan Rickman) keep the legendary club in order. [THR]

Working on a script by Jody Savin, director Randall Miller (Bottle Shock) will helm the story of New York’s music scene, and how Cbgb helped launch some of the biggest rock n’ roll acts of the past four decades before closing its doors in 2008.

Besides Logue, other stars who jumped on board recently are  Joel David Moore, Stana Katic, Johnny Galecki (The Big Bang Theory) as manager Terry Ork, Mickey Sumner (The Borgias) as singer Patti Smith, and Ashley Greene as Kristal’s daughter, »
