Jolene #1

Mulroney, Sutherland on "Jolene" trek

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Dermot Mulroney, Donald Sutherland, Michael Vartan and Denise Richards have joined the cast of "Jolene," the first indie film based on a story by E.L. Doctorow.

The project centers on a red-haired heroine (newcomer Jessica Chastain) whose cross-country adventures beginning at age 15 are tracked over the course of a decade. Chastain most recently starred opposite Al Pacino in the title role in the Los Angeles stage production of "Salome."

The project is based on Doctorow's tale "Jolene: A Life," from the 2004 collection "Sweet Land Stories." Adaptations of his novels include the studio features "Welcome to Hard Times," "Ragtime," "Daniel" and "Billy Bathgate."

Dan Ireland ("Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont") is shooting the film in Arizona.

Mulroney plays Uncle Phil, a devilish Southerner who captures the heart of the teenage Jolene, stealing her away from her husband, who is his nephew. Mulroney appears in the upcoming films "Zodiac" and "Georgia Rule."

Sutherland is taking on the role of Sal, an ex-mobster in Las Vegas. His recent credits include the indie horror film "An American Haunting" and the ABC series "Commander in Chief."

Vartan plays Brad, a rich fundamentalist from Texas who marries Jolene. He next appears in the horror-thriller "Rogue." Richards has the role of Marin, who shows up to reclaim her two-timing husband, who is married to Jolene. She recently appeared in the indie feature "Edmond."

Jolene is a short story by E.L. Doctorow published with other short stories under the title "Sweet Land Stories".

Hey guys, I read that the character he will be playing is quite nasty I don't know what to think It's great to see him playing a baddie as it would be a different role for him, but I love it when he's all cute and sweet

Ooh Vartan as the baddie, I like that! It's going to be a big change from lovable Vaughn, Kevin (MiL) and Sam (NBK), can't wait!

Although, he was an idiot in the Next Best Thing, but hopefully Jolene will be much better.

I like the sound of Michael being a baddie. We never seen him like one before and be interesting to see how he pulls it off. I'm very sure he will do brilliant at playing a baddie.

I'm happy Michael is doing another movie!
