Victor Rasuk, one of the stars of Lords of Dogtown, is the latest addition to the cast of William H. Macy's directorial debut Keep Coming Back. Rasuk will play the son of a stripper played by the talented (and downright heavenly) Salma Hayek. The story revolves around a clean-cut Southern teen whose heart condition prevents him from pursuing any form of excitement. Macy will play the doctor who has prescribed boredom as the only means of keeping the young man alive. Inventing a new bad-boy image for himself, the teen joins Alcoholics Anonymous just to be near Hayek's character, a woman twice his age with whom he has fallen in love. No word yet on who will be playing the youth with the bum ticker.

Now, given the description of this character's malady, I would think a single pole-dancing performance from Hayek would kill him on the spot, but I guess that would make for a pretty short film. Macy's eclectic resume as an actor certainly has me curious about what he can do as a director, so this is one I will be keeping an eye on. The screenplay is by Will Aldis,who also penned Black Cadillac and Avenging Angelo. Production is slated to begin in January.
