Jon Favreau’s tale of cowboys and Indians and aliens has added a fresh prostitute to the cast in “Mad Men’s” Abigail Spencer (below). According to THR, Spencer played a mistress in “Mad Men”, and will now be playing a prostitute name Alice in “Cowboys and Aliens”. But wait! She won’t be just any working lady, Spencer’s character will be that very special pro who changed the heart of our hero, Daniel Craig, for the better. Apparently co-star Olivia Wilde was lacking.
Spencer joins a film that’s already well into production down in New Mexico, with a cast that includes Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde, Harrison Ford and Sam Rockwell, among others.
The film is originally based on a comic book of the same name, but from everything I’ve seen, save for the title and basic premise, the film will barely resemble the original source material, which in this case is a good thing. The comic was not, well, really that good.
The cowboys and aliens are set to duke it out July 29, 2011.
