Reports are surfacing tonight that the star of AMC’s The Killing, Mireille Enos, is currently in talks for her first big movie role.
If negotiations go well, Enos will be playing the wife of Brad Pitt’s character in the Paramount adaptation of the best selling novel World War Z.
While not much is said about the movie’s plot, the novel tells the story of several interviews that were left out of the official UN report in the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse that describes how the world has changed for different cultures religiously, environmentally, and geo-politically because of the zombie war.
Enos’ role on AMC’s critically acclaimed new drama may have been her first big role, but she has been on television in some capacity for over a decade. After numerous guest spots on shows that include Sex in the City, Rescue Me, Numb3rs, CSI: Miami and Without a Trace among others, she obtained her first reoccurring role on HBO’s Big Love by appearing in 24 episodes according to IMDB.
AMC’s casting department apparently has the magic water because Enos is not the first actor who after years of hard work has finally made it to the big time. Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston has also made casting news lately as he has been reportedly in talks to play the villain opposite Colin Farrell in the 2012 remake of the 1990 blockbuster film Total Recall.
You can catch Enos in new episodes of The Killing (which is half way through its first season) Sunday nights at 10PM Est. on AMC. The first four episodes are currently available to stream at AMC.com.
