Ben Foster to be There in Chris Pine’s ‘Finest Hours’

Ben Foster 3:10 to Yuma

Ben Foster has joined the cast of Craig Gillespie’s The Finest Hours starring Chris Pine, Casey Affleck and Holliday Grainger.

Foster has firmly established himself as a solid character actor over the years with notable turns in Six Feet Under, Alpha Dog, 3:10 to Yuma and Lone Survivor. 

The film, currently shooting in Massachusetts, is based on the novel of the true story of the coast guard’s rescue attempt of a pair of oil tankers destroyed by a blizzard in 1952.

I really enjoyed Gillespie’s Lars and the Real Girl and I thought there were really fun parts in his remake of Fright Night. The Finest Hours sounds like a straight forward story that could be elevated by performances and direction (Much like David O. Russell, Wahlberg, Bale and Adams did with The Fighter).
