Another week has flown by, and it's time for more casting bites, courtesy of Variety:

She might have gotten to play Joan of Arc on the small screen, and get saucy in a Stanley Kubrick film, but now Leelee Sobieski is probably going to make many-a-Johnny Depp admirer jealous. She's been cast as the last girlfriend of John Dillinger - aka Depp - in Michael Mann's Public Enemies. This should make her Polly Hamilton -- a woman who didn't know who he really was, and was with him when he was gunned down.

Meanwhile, actor Jesse Williams is getting to cleanse his big-screen girly fare of the upcoming The Sisterhood of Traveling Pants 2 with Antoine Fuqua's Brooklyn's Finest. He will play Eddie Quinlan, a character who is pretty high up on the cast list that boasts Ethan Hawke, Richard Gere, Don Cheadle, and Ellen Barkin. The movie focuses on three unconnected cops who take very different career paths and wind up at "the same deadly location." Remember that hot, single-girl date movie on the way called Hard Breakers? Starring Sophie Monk? The flick has got two new cast members in Men in Trees'Scott Elrod and Alvin and the Chipmunks'Cameron Richardson. But that's not all -- there are also fairly recognizable names like Mad TV's Bobby Lee and that other Arquette, Alexis, as Ms. Independence.

Finally, Brien Perry (who you might remember as Sky -- husband-to-be in first-season Real Worlder Norman Korpi's mockumentary The Wedding Video) is going to star in the super-strange dark comedy called Possessions, which I told you about in April. He will play Jean-Luc, the chatty Frenchman who overtakes the mind of the cancer-ridden Orlando.
