Aldis Hodge perhaps best known for playing hacker Alec Hardison on the TNT series Leverage has joined the cast of Zal Batmanglij’s “echo terrorist” thriller titled The East. The movie which is currently shooting on location in Louisiana, centers around a contract worker who infiltrates an anarchist organization, known as The East, and finds herself falling in love with the groups leader.”
Aldis will be playing an ex-military member of the townspeople who are affiliated with The East. The movie currently stars Ellen Page, Alexander Skarsgard, Patricia Clarkson and Brit Marling. The film has no scheduled release date but I expect it will be released sometime in late 2012. As for Aldis Hodge, watch for him on TNT’s Leverage which will be returning to TV on November 27th.
