Chris Diamantopoulos Joins the George Clooney-Directed Film THE BOYS IN THE BOAT — GeekTyrant



Actor Chris Diamantopoulos (Red Notice, True Story) has joined the cast of George Clooney’s upcoming film, The Boys in the Boat. Based on the 2013 New York Times bestselling novel, The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, by Daniel James Brown, “the pic follows the triumphant underdog story of the University of Washington men’s rowing team, who stunned the world by winning gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics.”

Diamantopoulos will play the role of Royal Brougham, the Seattle sports journalist who follows the team and reports their story. He joins the previously announced cast that includes Joel Edgerton, Callum Turner, Jack Mulhern, Sam Strike, Luke Slattery, Thomas Elms, Tom Varey, Bruce Herbelin-Earle, Wil Coban, James Wolk, Hadley Robinson and Courtney Henggeler.

Clooney is directing from a script adapted by The Revenant writer, Mark L. Smith. I am a fan of the people involved so far, and I love a sports underdog story, so I look forward to seeing more about this movie.
