In addition to his longtime pal Murray, the filmmaker has also just added Angela Lansbury to his lineup. The Grand Budapest Hotel marks the Murder, She Wrote legend’s first time featuring in one of Anderson’s movies. “I’m playing a woman of mystery, it’s a miniscule role,” she told the publication. “I’m on the screen probably for less than five minutes.”
Lansbury and Murray join previously announced stars Owen Wilson, Johnny Depp, and Jude Law.
The nature of Murray and Lansbury’s roles have not been revealed, but both stars have been rumored for months now. In July, Murray, Lansbury, Law, Wilson, and Depp were named among the actors Anderson had approached for his new project, along with Edward Norton, Jeff Goldblum, Adrien Brody, and Willem Dafoe. The Grand Budapest Hotel is said to be an ensemble piece, so hopefully we’ll get to add a few more of those names to the confirmed list before casting is through.
