Movie: City of Ember

More cast additions for the movie version of City of Ember:
Tim Robbins, Martin Landau Join 'City of Ember'<

Bill Murray is, as expected, The Mayor of Ember, who the children go up against, and as for the rest of the new cast -- Robbins is Doon's father and an inventor who holds a secret about the city, Landau is Doon's boss in the Pipeworks and Jean-Baptise is a greenhouse worker. Between the talent behind the production and the story itself, I'm itching to see what they make of the dark, electric-lit world.

Marianne Jean-Baptiste is great as Vivian on Without a Trace. I've heard a few interviews with her, and I love her natural accent. (On WoaT, she plays a New Yorker.)

Martin Landau! Martin Landau! MARTIN LANDAU!

(Who was also on WoaT, actually, but my exclamations come more from the fact that he's MARTIN LANDAU! and was in one of my all-time favorite movies. Guess what!)

Bill Murray should be interesting in that role.
