Jeffrey Donovan, Colm Feore and John Malkovich have joined Angelina Jolie in "Changeling," a true life drama that Clint Eastwood is directing for Universal and Imagine. The story follows a woman (Jolie) whose son goes missing in 1920s Los Angeles. The police return the wrong child and the woman is thrown into an insane asylum for disagreeing with the LAPD. When it seems that her real son has been murdered by a child serial killer and the child returned admits to fraud, she takes her case to the city council and takes down the mayor, the police chief and several corrupt officers, concurrently sparking changes in the insanity legislation. Donovan will play a police captain, Feore the chief of police and Malkovich a reverend. Also joining the cast are Jason Butler Harner ("John Adams"), who portrays a mechanic accused of murdering the woman's son, as well as Amy Ryan and Michael Kelly. Donovan is the star of USA Networks' "Burn Notice," the Matt Nix-created show that became a hit this summer. He is repped by Paradigm.
Feore, repped by Endeavor, will be seen as a series regular on the upcoming season of Fox's "24," in which he plays first husband opposite Tony winner Cherry Jones as the president. Malkovich will next be seen starring in Robert Zemeckis' "Beowulf" and stars in "The Great Buck Howard." He is repped by Endeavor and Finch & Partners.
