EXCLUSIVE: Jason Clarke has signed with CAA, just as he completes talks to play the male lead role of Abraham Lincoln’s stern father in the Terrence Malick-produced and A.J. Edwards-directed The Green Blade Rises. The fast-rising Australian actor has a slew of big roles coming up. He just appeared in Lawless, and he next stars in the Kathryn Bigelow-directed hunt-for-bin Laden film Zero Dark Thirty, which Sony releases in December. He also completed production of the Baz Luhrmann-directed The Great Gatsby (in the role of gas station owner George Wilson, originated by The Walking Dead‘s Scott Wilson). Clarke is currently in production on White House Down. He had been at UTA.
