HOUSE OF CARDS Actor Corey Stoll Could Join ANT-MAN And Evangeline Lilly Confirmed?
TheWrap reports that character actor Corey Stoll (Midnight In Paris, House of Cards, Non-Stop, Salt) is in-talks to take an unnamed role in Edgar Wright's Ant-Man. His role isn't mentioned but it's possible he could end-up taking either supporting role or could end up a villain. Patrick Wilson's role hasn't been revealed but Stoll might end up playing SHIELD Agent Eric O'Grady or even villain Egghead (a role both Simon Pegg and Rob Corddry jokingly campaigned for). I'm sure when Marvel makes the official casting announcements we'll get more information.The rest of the cast includes Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Patrick Wilson, Michael Pena and Clifton Collins Jr.
The site also seemingly confirms that Canadian actress Evangeline Lilly (Lost, Real Steel, Hurt Locker, Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Hobbit: There And Back Again) has indeed been cast in the female lead, which may or may not be Janet aka The Wasp.
