Now that the main characters of “R.I.P.D.” have been cast, it’s up to Universal to fill in secondary and other roles. In the past few days two big names have been added, one of whom is a world-famous super model and the other a well-respected television and movie actress.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Victoria’s Secret super model Marisa Miller has been cast, but it’s unknown yet what role she will play.
Best known of course for her modeling work, Miller has nonetheless done some television cameos, like on “How I Met Your Mother” and “Entourage.” However, this will be her first time acting in a movie.
Just last week Variety also gave us news that Mary-Louise Parker has also joined the cast. This time there’s no secret as to whom she’ll be playing: Parker will be the head of a division who gets to tell people about their own deaths. Jodie Foster had also been considered for the role, but Foster eventually bowed out.
While Miller is more or less making her acting debut with this film, Parker has a strong history as an actress in television and movies. She’s been in the movies “Fried Green Tomatoes,” “The Spiderwick Chronicles” and, of course, last year's comic book movie "Red." You might also recognize her from her television roles on “The West Wing” and “Weeds.”
