Amy Landecker cast in ‘Doctor Strange’ film

Doctor Strange continues to put together an impressive cast and now TheWrap reports that Amy Landecker has been cast.

Benedict Cumberbatch headlines the great cast which includes Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelsen and Michael Stuhlbarg.

Cumberbatch stars as Stephen Strange, an arrogant neurosurgeon who destroys his hands (and therefore his career) in a car accident. Desperate to fix himself, he stumbles across the discovery of magic and alternate dimensions.

Swinton stars as the Ancient One, who mentors Strange in his study of magic. Ejiofor is Baron Mordo, Strange’s villainous rival. Mikkelsen is expected to play another as-yet-unnamed villain. Stuhlbarg plays Nicodemus West, a doctor.

McAdams’ role is unknown, though fans have speculated she’ll play either Clea or Night Nurse. Landecker’s role is also being kept under wraps.

Landecker first broke out as Stuhlbarg’s attractive neighbor in the Coen Brothers’ A Serious Man, and currently stars alongside Emmy winner Jeffrey Tambor in the acclaimed Amazon dramedy Transparent.

She also had roles in Project AlmanacEnough Said, and several episodes of FX’s Louie.

Coming up next from her are The Meddler, from director Lorene Scafaria, and the thriller Hunter’s Prayer.

Shooting on Doctor Strange is already underway, with Scott Derrickson directing from a script by Jon Spaihts.

The film arrives in theaters November 4th, 2016.
