Post Sasso in "Southland Tales"

Will Sasso has joined an ever-growing ensemble of well known names for the upcoming Southland Tales. The IMDb description categorises the film as containing elements of the comedy, musical, science-fiction and thriller genres, and director Richard Kelly describes it as being a "strange hybrid of the sensibilities of Andy Warhol and Phillip K. Dick." While Will's role is still uknown, here is the basic description of the film from IMDb as it stands:
Southland Tales is an ensemble piece set in the futuristic landscape of Los Angeles on July 4, 2008, as it stands on the brink of social, economic and environmental disaster. Boxer Santaros (The Rock) is an action star who's stricken with amnesia. His life intertwines with Krysta Now (Sarah Michelle Gellar), an adult film star developing her own reality television project, and David Clark (Seann William Scott), a Hermosa Beach police officer who holds the key to a vast conspiracy.
This sounds like it is going to be something to keep an eye out for, with the lead up promotions including six novels written by the director to be released before the film, and one of the most elaborate websites for a film ever created. You can check out the IMDb page for Southland Tales here. Information regarding Will comes from Reuters.

Congrats Will. Does this movie come out July 4, 2008 or is that just the setting of the movie?

Setting. If you looked at the imdb page, you would have seen the release date is 2006.

Well it seems like this will Debut at Cannes. Good News for Will.
Also, if you want a sneak peak of his role, check out his myspace page for an image from one of the Graphic Novels for the film. I'm pretty sure that it his character.

Wow after readin the summaries on Amazon for the graphic novels, Will seems to have a very significant role in the film. Thats awesome, I hope his character impacts the film as much as he seems to impact the novels.

To further comment on the significance of Will's role...

In the production notes he is the 5th actor billed. Only The Rock, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Sean William Scott and Cheri Oteri are billed before him.

I'm not a genius but with such a huge ensemble cast, being billed fifth is a big effing deal.
The film was also nominated for the Golden palm award in the Cannes festival, which is considered by some to be the "Holy Grail" of cinema.

I know that this thread isn't generating much conversation on the board but I think that when people see it, they will be very impressed with Will.

Ok here is a clip from the Film at Cannes, but it has naughty language so if you are too young to hear bad words, do not click the link....
