Dermot Mulroney joins "August: Osage County"

We're getting there.  With the announcement that cutey Dermot Mulroney has been cast as Juliette Lewis's smarmy husband Steve Heidebrecht, we now have only six characters left to cast.  Considering shooting starts in under six weeks, I suppose we can expect about one cast member revealed weekly until then.  I've enjoyed several of Mulroney's movies in the past. My fav is probably Copycat with Holly Hunter and Sigourney Weaver.  Maybe I'll try to find it on Netflix tonight.  This film reunites Mulroney with Julia Roberts from their pairing in the hilarious My Best Friend's Wedding.  Here's the latest on casting:

Violet Weston: Meryl Streep (confirmed)
Barbara Fordham: Julia Roberts (confirmed)
Charlie Aiken: Chris Cooper (confirmed)
Karen Weston: Juliette Lewis (confirmed)
Jean Fordham: Abigail Breslin (confirmed)
Beverly Weston: Tom Wilkinson (speculated)
Ivy Weston: Amy Adams (speculated)
Mattie Fae Aiken: Margo Martindale (confirmed)
Steve Heidebrecht: Dermot Mulroney (confirmed)

These roles are yet to be confirmed:

Little Charles
Sheriff Deon

Have I mentioned I'm excited for this project?  Ahhhh!
