Gary Oldman and Dominic Monaghan are joining the cast of Monster Butler, an indie being directed by Doug Rath.
Malcolm McDowell is starring in Butler, the true story of Roy Fontaine (aka Archibald Hall), a bisexual jewel thief/con man/serial killer who chronicles his personal descent into darkness leading up to his eventual capture.
Also in the cast is Joanne Whalley (The Borgias).
Oldman will portray Wiggy, a taxidermist with anger issues and business on the side who partners with Fontaine on a number of crimes before things get heavy.
Monaghan will play David Wright, a key player in Roy’s life and who also serves as his Achilles’ heel. Their relationship begins in prison and restarts when they both work on an estate. But a blackmail attempt forces Fontaine’s hand and begins his descent into murder and mayhem.
Umm, this sounds kind of perfect. Mostly because omg taxidermist with anger issues? Indeed.
