Veteran, Oscar-winning actor Jeremy Irons has been added to the growing cast of actors to join the adaptation of Beautiful Creatures.

From the official press release:

Irons is the most recent in a flurry of casting announcements, joining Viola Davis (Amma), Emma Thompson (Mrs. Lincoln/Sarafine), Emmy Rossum (Ridley), Thomas Mann (Link) and relative newcomers Jack O’Connell (Ethan) and Alice Englert (Lena).

Irons will play the role of Macon Ravenwood, Lena’s mysterious and recluse uncle.

A hauntingly intense coming of age story set in the South, “Beautiful Creatures” is about two star-crossed teenage lovers, Ethan, a local boy, and a mysterious new girl, Lena, who uncover dark secrets about their families, their history and their town.
