Behr nails down ‘Shipping News’ role for Miramax

By Zorianna Kit

LOS ANGELES (The Hollywood Reporter) — Jason Behr (The WB Network’s
“Roswell”) has joined Kevin Spacey, Cate Blanchett, Judi Dench, Rhys Ifans
and Pete Postlethwaite in Miramax Films’ “The Shipping News” for director
Lasse Hallstrom. The project is shooting in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning best seller of the same name by E. Annie
Proulx, “Shipping” tells the story of a newspaper reporter (Spacey) who
moves with his young daughter, Bunny, to his ancestral home on the
Newfoundland coast after his cheating wife is killed in a car accident.
While in the quaint town, the reporter writes the shipping news for the
local paper, the Gammy Bird, as he confronts his private demons and falls in
love with a lonely single mother (Julianne Moore). Behr will play Dennis
Buggit, a local carpenter battling his own demons and whose estranged father
(Scott Glenn) owns the local newspaper.

Identical 8-year-old triplets Kaitlyn, Lauren and Alyssa Gainer (“Cast
Away”) have been cast as Bunny.

Rob Cowan, Linda Goldstein Knowlton, Irwin Winkler and Leslie Holleran are
producing.

Behr is repped by WMA and manager Robert Stein. The Gainer triplets are
repped by Cindy Osbrink of the Osbrink Talent Agency.
