Hong Chau is on quite a run. After receiving some awards buzz years back for Alexander Payne‘s Downsizing, she’s been killing it on television, notable for Homecoming and Watchmen. Back at the Toronto International Film Festival, Joey saw her films The Menu (reviewed here) and Darren Aronofsky’s The Whale (reviewed here), with the latter movie seemingly placing her right back in the Oscar season conversation. Well, an upcoming part also seems likely to be Academy Award friendly, considering the A-list filmmaker at the helm.
According to Variety, Chau’s latest role is in the Yorgos Lanthimos film And. She’ll be co-starring alongside Emma Stone, Jesse Plemons, Willem Dafoe, and Margaret Qualley. Nothing is known yet about the movie, but with the cast that Lanthimos is assembling, it’s sure to be hotly anticipated, much like his next film Poor Things, which already features Dafoe and Stone. More on this one as it becomes known.
