Andy Garcia is a good actor.
I like his performances in The Untouchables, Black Rain, The Godfather part III, Internal Affairs and Ocean’s Eleven.
If he was in The Mule, it would be a good thing.
But which part could he play ? The cartel boss ? Maybe.
Next month, Warner Bros could announce The Mule’s release date.

Someone has to block the action when Clint is setting up the shot. Or are you wondering why they needed two?

I’m really not that familiar with him. “The Untouchables was a great movie but I dont remember him standing out. That was more Costner’s, Connery’s and DeNiro’s movie. I dont remember “Godfather III” and I wasn’t impressed with “Ocean’s 11,” but that wasn’t his fault. Its kind of strange since he has been in so many movies, but I dont really remember him ever making a strong impression on me.

No, I just wonder why two were needed.

The mystery of Andy Garcia’s involvement has been solved. I have received confirmation from a source close to the production that Andy Garcia plays the head of the drug cartel in “The Mule.”

That is just fantastic. He will add so much talent to the cast and too much pleasure to the screen.

I have never been a big fan of Bradley Cooper (though I do acknowledge that he is a very good actor, and I could see his acting style being a good fit for this role), but I do think that this film has one of the more impressive casts that Eastwood has worked with. Clint Eastwood, Bradley Cooper, Laurence Fishburne, Dianne Weist, and now, Andy Garcia.

Cooper was terrific in American Sniper, though ... I don't think I've ever seen him in anything else.

I agree, AKA, very high-quality cast.

Agreed, great cast.. I particularly like Dianne Weist.
 
I like Cooper too, he was excellent in Sniper, I also thought he was very good in Silver Linings Playbook.

Bradley is truly one of the finest actors of his generation and also one of Eastwood's oldest admirers. He has a great amount of passion toward Clint and it makes his collaboration with him a personal one. As he always says, he is always looking for Eastwood.

I don’t know, but he does have a stand-in, which seems to indicate to me that he is in a significant number of scenes. For those that understand the filmmaking process, would a stand-in be needed if someone was only performing a cameo-type role? I think he joined the project in New Mexico, since we never heard about him being there when they were filming in Georgia.

He was good in American Sniper and I’ve seen “Silver Linings Playbook” and enjoyed that film too.

I like Dianne Weist as well. She is not really a household name but she is a two time Academy Award winning actress. I particularly enjoyed her performance with Gabriel Byrne in the tv series “In Treatment.”  She played Byrne’s therapist and was great. Have you seen that Gant?

I thought In Treatment was a great show and was highly disappointed when it ended prematurely.  Weist has an impressive career.  One thing that I don't think Clint gets enough credit for is his casting of great actresses in so many of his films.

I know Dianne Wiest for Hannah and her Sisters, which is one of the best Woody Allen films.
She appeared in other Woody Allen films.

I’ve never seen any iteration of “A Star Is Born,” but the movie trailer made it look like it could be good and its getting such strong reviews that I think I’m going to have to check it out.

I do find it quite interesting that two films that Eastwood wanted to make but ultimately passed on, this and “First Man” about Niel Almstrong, have become the darlings of the festival season and could both be competing for the Oscars this year.

Though Mule is yet another tru-life story-film from Eastwood,I got to say that the story do sound intresting and the fact that Eastwood himself is back in front (and behind) of the camera is just awesome news!
