Goran Visnjic Joins Beginners
Alongside McGregor and Plummer

09 November 2009  |  Written by Chris Hewitt  |  Source: Variety

With the doors of ER’s County General Hospital now forever closed, poor old Goran Visnjic – who played dishy doc Dr. Luka Kovac – has had to find a new home. And it looks like he’s decided to give the big screen one last try by signing on to join Ewan McGregor, Christopher Plummer and Inglourious Basterds star, Melanie Laurent, in Beginners.

Mike Mills – the director of Thumbsucker, not to be confused with  R.E.M.’s frizzy-haired bassist – is directing the indie movie, whose plot is being kept very firmly under wraps, from his own script. Filming has already begun in L.A.

Visjnic, thus far, hasn’t exactly set the movie world alight. He’s had bad guy turns in the likes of Practical Magic and The Deep End, was the love interest in the risible Elektra, and impressed in Michael Winterbottom’s Welcome To Sarajevo. But, now he’s free of ER commitments (although he left the show some time before the series finale), he may well be able to mount a renewed attack on the movies.
