Deadline is reporting that Tony Award-winner Nina Arianda has been cast in Meryl's upcoming film Florence Foster Jenkins. Arianda will evidently play a showgirl by the name of Agnes Stark. Filming is set to begin next month with Stephen Frears directing.
Recall that Arianda was at the original table reading for Rob Marshall's Into the Woods back in 2012 in the role of the Baker's Wife. Emily Blunt of course went on to perform the role in the film version. The full cast to date for Florence Foster Jenkins is as follows:
Florence Foster Jenkins: Meryl Streep
St. Clair Bayfield: Hugh Grant
Cosmé McMoon: Simon Helberg
Bayfield's wife: Rebecca Ferguson
Agnes Stark: Nina Arianda
