Veteran Actor James Russo has signed onto Scott Cooper’s currently filming Whitey Bulger film, Black Mass in Boston. This is his fourth time working with Johnny Depp. The three previous films they appeared together were “Donnie Brasco’, ‘The Ninth Gate’ and ‘Public Enemies’.
A great bit of trivia is that Russo also played the guy who tries to rob the Mi-T-Mart at the end of ‘Fast Times at Ridgemont High’ (Who looks remarkably like Emile Hirsch) and gets taken out by Sean Penn and Judge Reinhold.
Black Mass stars Johnny Depp as Whitely Bulger and Benedict Cumberbatch as brother Billy Bulger with Joel Edgerton as FBI Agent John Connelly. The film also features Juno Temple, Dakota Johnson, Sienna Miller, Jesse Plemons and Adam Scott. The film will continue to shoot in Boston through July. It is due to be released in October of 2015.
