Boardwalk Empire's Jack Huston Added to O. Russell's 'Abscam' Project

Jack HustonYet another talented face is added to David O. Russell's as-yet, untitled Abscam project as "Boardwalk Empire" star (and superb talent) Jack Huston joins Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Jennifer Lawrence.

Filming on the 1970s-set true story is currently underway in Boston as it tells the story of a con artist (Bale) and his partner in crime (Adams), who were forced to work with a federal agent (Cooper) to turn the tables on other cons, mobsters, and politicians.

There is no word on which character Huston will be playing.

Columbia Pictures is set to release the film on Christmas Day and Oscar nominations are expected to follow. [Deadline]

    Jack Houston is great his character Richard Harrow in Boardwalk Empire is one of the best character on the show. Glad to see him join this very talented cast.

      I agree -- Richard Harrow is a stand-out on Boardwalk Empire. I've become a fan of Jack Huston, and looking forward to seeing him in this.
