Sam Rockwell will join Harrison Ford, Daniel Craig and Olivia Wilde in the upcoming film adaptation of the graphic novel Cowboys & Aliens, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The casting re-teams Rockwell with his Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau. Rockwell plays a bar owner who joins a team of cowboys and Native Americans who team up to fight off an alien invasion. The part was originally meant for a heavy-set actor, but when Favreau and the writers learned Rockwell was interested in acting in the film, they re-wrote the part just for him.
