Oscar winner Jessica Lange joins Mark Wahlberg in “The Gambler”

PanARMENIAN.Net - The American Horror Story star has put her cards on the table for The Gambler. Jessica Lange will play the rich and ostentatious mother of Mark Wahlberg’s in-debt character in the Paramount remake of the 1974 pic, Deadline said.

Wahlberg will reprise the role James Caan played in the original of a college professor whose gambling addiction takes over his life even after his debts lead to some nasty new friends.

Talks for two-time Oscar winner Lange to get on board with the movie have been going on for a couple of months, according to Deadline.

Brie Lawson is also in the Rupert Wyatt-directed pic from a script from William Monahan.

Joining The Gambler comes at the end of a high profile month for Lange. On a career second life rarely seen in Hollywood, the actress recently received both Golden Globes and the SAG Awards nominations for her role as the Supreme witch Fiona Goode on the current AHS: Coven season of the FX horror franchise. Lange, who also published her first children’s book It’s About A Little Bird in October, has previously won an Emmy plus GG and SAG awards for the performances on past seasons of the show. And there could be more – last month FX reupped AHS for a fourth season with Lange.
