EXCLUSIVE: Alessandro Nivola has just signed on for a lead role in the Nicolas Winding Refn-directed Neon Demon. He will play a fashion impresario who taps Elle Fanning as his muse. The project reunites Nivola with both Fanning and Christina Hendricks, who played his daughter and wife in the Sally Potter-directed 2012 film Ginger and Rosa. Nivola was most recently seen in the JC Chandor-directed A Most Violent Year, and in the Ava DuVernay-directed Selma. He also starred opposite Bradley Cooper in The Elephant Man, which just finished a Broadway run in February. He will rejoin Cooper and play the role of Dr. Frederick Treves in the London production of the same play. He’ll jump on a plane right after he completes Neon Demon in May. Nivola is repped by CAA and Management 360.
