Variety also lets us know that A Better Life actor Demian Bichir is currently in talks for Oliver Stone‘s Savages. He’s playing Alex, who they describe as being “a two-timing attorney who works for Salma Hayek‘s cartel.” He’s been receiving some positive notices for his work in A Better Life as of late, while he’s also appeared in the Showtime series Weeds, and played Fidel Castro in Steven Soderbergh‘s Che.
Based on the book of the same name by Don Winslow, it follows two drug dealers in Laguna Beach – played by Aaron Johnson and Taylor Kitsch – who must save their friend, O (Blake Lively) who has been kidnapped by the Mexican drug cartel. Benicio del Toro is playing the main enforcer of the cartel, and Hayek is playing Elena, the woman who looks after O while she’s in their custody. Emile Hirsch has an unspecified part, while Uma Thurman and John Travolta will have a Pulp Fiction reunion here, with the former playing O’s mother, while the latter is appearing as a “burned out DEA agent.”

Aaron talks about how things were on the set of Kick-Ass in a new interview.
Aaron Johnson has revealed he had to endure hours of filming in a sweaty jock strap for Kick Ass.
The 19-year-old Nowhere Boy star – who is engaged to Sam Taylor Wood – plays a normal high school kid who decides to re-style himself as an amateur superhero, complete with green wetsuit, in Matthew Vaughn’s action comedy.
Aaron revealed: “It gets pretty sweaty at times if you’re fighting constantly and I had to wear a jockstrap, so it was uncomfortable, but you get used to it.”
He added: “I was in the costume probably every day for about 12 and a half hours a day, for three months. Only two toilet breaks a day. It was enjoyable, but it was mad.”
Photos from the SXSW premiere of Kick-Ass and the London premiere arrivals and after party have been added to the gallery. Enjoy!
