Buscemi Offered Role In 'Burt Wonderstone' With Carell & Carrey

Reported by Outsiders - 10:05 PM 2011.10.31
New Lines has offered Steve Buscemi the role of Anton for Don Scardino-directed comedy "Burt Wonderstone." The character of Anton is the longtime Las Vegas magic act partner of Wonderstone. A split sends Wonderstone into a crisis and a collision with a rival magician out to steal his thunder. Wonderstone is played by Steve Carell and Jim Carrey is playing the rival magician.

Buscemi hopes to fit Burt Wonderstone into his hiatus from Boardwalk Empire. If the talks work out, he would make the movie and move right into the third season of the superb HBO drama. There has been talk going around that Olivia Wilde is in negotiations to play the female lead, but this may happen, it hasnít yet.
