Karen is really not a super-big role. She has the least to do out of the three sisters.

I had heard that Beverly Weston will be played by Robert Redford.

Although, 19-year-olds playing 16-year-olds is pretty much par-for-the-course for Hollywood.

This is a really terrific movie breakthrough for Margo Martindale. She's dependably good, and Mattie Fay is a proven scene-stealer of a role. I could see her being a supporting winner a la Octavia Spencer.

When i heard of Cooper's name i thought he would either play Streep's or Martindale's husband. According to Broadway.com Cooper plays Lewis' husband, but they must be wrong since in the play, Karen has a fiance, not a husband.

The cast of the August Osage County film is starting to shape up

We already had 3 Oscar winners and 2 Oscar nominees cast and now it was announced that EMMY winner Margo Martindale will play the baity role of Matty. They have still to cast the big roles of Karen and Bill. Could Clooney (who is also the producer) appear as Bill?

So the Weston Family looks like this

Beverly Weston -
Violet Weston - Meryl Streep

Their daughters
Barbara - Julia Roberts
Ivy - Juliette Lewis
Karen -

Bill (Barbara's husband) -
Jean (Barbara's daughter) - Abigail Breslin

Mattie Fay Aiken (Violet's sister) - Margot Martindale
Charlie (her husband) -
Little Charles (their son) -

Johnna (the housekeeper) -
Steve (Karen's fiance) - Chris Cooper
Dean (sheriff) -


Directed by John Wells
Produced by George Clooney & Grant Heslov
