On Thursday, Gina Carano confirmed that she will join the cast of a new Hunter Biden biography now filming scenes in Serbia. The previous “Mandalorian” actress just concluded production on The Daily Wire’s Western “Terror on the Prairie.” She expressed her excitement to now be a part of “My Son Hunter” in a YouTube video.
Laurence Fox (“Gosford Park,” “Victoria”) plays Biden in the film, which follows his hard-partying lifestyle and questionable financial transactions with his father, Joe Biden.
Carano will portray a “world-weary Secret Service agent present to most of the Biden family’s dodgy dealings,” according to producer Phelim McAleer. He went on to say that her character “provides a voice of truth and sardonic comedy over the absurd dealings of the Biden family and various Chinese, Russian, and Ukrainian oligarchs. She is present throughout the film – commenting and sometimes narrating the absurd life and party lifestyle of Hunter Biden and the dodgy dealings of his father.”
“I feel excited to be working with incredible actors, a visionary director and some new found friends as producers. …The script was instantly intriguing and side achingly hilarious to me, especially after being newly exposed to the political realm in 2020. Robert Davi is someone who reached out to me as soon as I was ‘cancelled’ in Feb. 2021. I signed on in support of him and one of my favorite humans Laurence Fox. They both have always been actors I adore watching and now they both have become my friends and mentors. The icing on the cake was getting to meet John James, a wildly funny charismatic and lovable human. It is such a pleasure to be on the forefront of groundbreaking story telling.” said by Gina Carano herself.
Carano singled out filmmaker Robert Davi (“Die Hard,” “License to Kill”) as someone who came out to her after she was sacked from the popular Star Wars franchise for publicizing her political views on social media by Disney. “Someone I admire” and “someone who I believe is painting an incredible picture right now,” she said of the seasoned actor.
“John is just one of my favorite human beings—absolutely talented, amazing, and gentle-spirited,” she said of american actor James (“Dynasty,” “The Colbys”) for his part as the 46th president.
Davi said he cast Carano because of the sense of strength combined with vulnerability she exudes.
The first promotional photographs for the film were revealed on Twitter on Wednesday, and they included Fox as Hunter Biden smoking, partying with strippers, and painting in a studio. The picture is set to hit theaters next year.
