SCOOP: Casino Royale Star Jeffrey Wright Joins The Cast Of The Avengers?

SCOOP: <i>Casino Royale</i> Star Jeffrey Wright Joins The Cast Of <i>The Avengers</i>?

The latest rumors from the Cleveland shooting location of The Avengers is that the Casino Royale star has flown in to the city to take part in filming! Hit the jump for more...



A day or two ago, I noticed a Tweet related to The Avengers filming in Cleveland, stating that Jeffrey Wright and his family had been spotted in a restaurant in the city. Big deal, right? Well, I got in touch with them to ask what exactly made them think he had anything to do with the movie, and the actor apparently told this person (who works in the establishment he visited) that he was there to shoot it!

Having asked around, I've been able to confirm nothing more than the fact he IS there, but just how accurate this information was I don't know. I would like to point out that I only spotted this Tweet by chance, and so it's not a case of someone getting in touch because they're looking for attention! As with any rumor, take it with a pinch of salt, but I trust this person, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see either way!

What would you think about the Quantum of Solace and Source Code star joining the cast of The Avengers? Who could he be playing?! Be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place!
