Over at director James Gunn's Facebook page, he made another casting announcement of his upcoming horror flick, The Belko Experiment.

"He's the President of the United States on Scandal and now he's the C.O.O. of the Belko Corporation - I'm excited to announce The Belko Experiment's second official cast member, Tony Goldwyn

Tony will play Barry Norris. Norris is a guy who is used to being in charge at the Belko Building in South America, so it isn't easy for him to start taking orders when the office employees are mysteriously forced to either start killing each other or be killed.

The Belko Experiment is an action-horror-thriller, but it's important to me and the director Greg McLean that it's first and foremost about characters - which is why we needed to get the best actors possible. I've been a big admirer of Tony's talent for a long time. He's an outstanding actor with an incredible pedigree, and we couldn't have asked for a better person to join myself, Greg, my fellow producer Peter Safran, and actor John Gallagher, Jr. on this journey."

The production starts filming in June in Colombia. Gunn also mentioned that there will be another casting announcement on his page tomorrow as well. 

This will be Goldwyn's return to horror in almost three decades. While he's definitely carved out his dramatic role in the soap opera theatrics of Scandal, Goldwyn is also probably most known for his villainous turn in Ghost as the conniving Carl, who has Patrick Swayze's Sam murdered. 

Readers, is this something you're looking forward to?
