The Wrap reports that an offer has been made to John Goodman to join the cast of the biopic Trumbo opposite Bryan Cranston. The film is a biopic of blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo.
An offer was made to Goodman for him to play Hollywood producer Frank King. Cranston is set to play Trumbo, and Helen Mirren is signed on to play gossip columnist Hedda Hopper. Trumbo was brought before Joseph McCarthy's House of Un-American Activities Committee and he refused to testify. As a result, Trumbo was blacklisted but continued to write under fake names.
