Tim Blake Nelson, who most recently appeared in ‘Lincoln‘, will star in both ‘Bukowski‘, written and directed by James Franco, and ‘The Homesman‘, to be directed by Tommy Lee Jones. In his fourth time working with Franco, Nelson will play Charles Bukowski’s father in a story that will chronicle the poet’s life from childhood through high school. Nelson will join Hilary Swank, Meryl Streep, and Jones in the cast of ‘The Homesman’, which will see an untrustworthy man and a spinster school teacher team up to escort three insane women from Nebraska to Iowa. The film will shoot this spring in New Mexico.
