Fallon  and Red!

John Fallon (aka The Arrow of has officially been cast as ‘Jimmy’ in Eric Red’s 100 FEET. Eric Red and Fallon had to say about this latest casting addition.

Eric Red: “The character John plays is Jimmy, the Department Of Correction police technician who puts the electronic ankle bracelet on Famke Janssen’s character Marnie and tells her how it works. Jimmy is a tough but sympathetic internet type cop guy who introduces the heroine to her home prison in the beginning. John’s perfect casting and is going to be great. He’s already done his homework and spent time with police in the house arrest division for research on authenticity. Plus on a personal note, it’s neat evolution of a long friendship having him be in one of my pictures and it’s going to be a lot of fun working together!”

John Fallon: “Consider me a very happy camper on varied levels as to this acting gig. First it’s the biggest role I’ve ever had in a big budget production. Yes, I get more than two lines! Second; the bulk of my part is opposite a fav of mine, actress Famke Janssen. I’ve loved her in Goldeneye, City of

Industry , House on a Haunted Hill, Lord of Illusions and of course, Deep Rising, and it will be a joy for me to work with her. Finally and more importantly, I’ll get to work with Eric Red in a new capacity. Red was a major inspiration for me when I was younger via his visceral and brilliant screenplays. He actually motivated me to start writing in the first place. And now I get to be on set to witness him do his magic. The term “full circle” can’t help but come to my feeble mind. I’m beyond anxious and excited to see Red take down the fort and to be part of it at that… I couldn’t ask for more! Today is a good f*cking day!”

Michael Pare stars as the peeved spirit in 100 FEET.

Bobby Cannavale (from Snakes on a Plane), Ed Westwick (of Children of Men) and genre veteran Michael Pare (who worked with Eric Red before on Bad Moon) have all joined the cast of 100 FEET.

Cannavale will play Shanks, the tough as nails Police Detective on the case. Westwick will tackle the role of Joey, a young man who befriends the lead Marnie (played by the lovely Famke Janssen, as previously reported here). And Michael Pare will be the vengeful and unapologetically brutal ghost out for dire payback.

Here are some further stills of the players (below).

Bobby Cannavale is Detective Shanks.

Ed Westwick is Joey.
