Good Shepherd Seeks Flock
Casting notices & plot synopsis for De Niro/DiCaprio pic.
June 04, 2004 - Star Search Casting has posted some very insightful casting notices for Robert De Niro's next directing project, The Good Shepherd. The Universal espionage drama begins filming in New York this fall. Casting is now underway. De Niro will co-star as well as produce the film along with Francis Ford Coppola's American Zoetrope. Eric Roth (The Insider) penned the script.
The Good Shepherd is a film Ã clef based on the life of CIA founder James Jesus Angleton. The protagonist, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, is "a Yale graduate named James Wilson who is groomed to be a spy. He later becomes the head of what will evolve into the Central Intelligence Agency. The film follows four decades of his life from college through the Cold War."
Some of the supporting roles that are still being cast include:
"Connie Wilson, Caucasian, mid 20s - 30s. A moody, troubled woman with an alcohol problem. She has blonde hair. Her scenes take place in the 1920s. She is very needy for her husband's affection. Connie is jealous of any women who might have affairs with her husband. She has a young son named James.
"Kip Wiley, Caucasian, Late 20s - mid 30s. A well-dressed, handsome young Englishman who is very dashing and congenial on the outside, yet has a calculating intelligence inside. Kip is someone to respect and to fear. He speaks with a bit of stutter. He is a British spy, like an early James Bond."
