Giovanni RibisiEvery piece of news I hear about Gangster Squad further contributes to an already overzealous anticipation of this sure-to-be-awesome movie. Joining the assemblage of splendor that is the existing cast is Giovanni Ribisi, who I liked before it was cool.

Ribisi will join living legends Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, and Bryan Cranston in the ‘elite cop squad’ hunting down the head of the “Jewish Mafia,” Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn). Ribisi’s character will be an expert in electronics, which, as the film is set in the 1940s, means he owns two lamps.

Giovanni Ribisi has never disappointed me—be it mining Unobtanium, stealing cars or fathering triplets fostered by his sister’s surrogate womb, he’s got a screen presence that will only augment this already unstoppable film.

The former Cory Kupkus will also be joining Johnny Depp in the upcoming adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson’s The Rum Diary and will play a major role in Seth MacFarlane’s Ted.
