Barry Pepper makes everything better. You might say he’s the salt of character acting. Now he’s going to be adding his particular spice to two more projects.

According to Variety, Pepper is joining the cast for Snitch – the drama starring Dwayne Johnson as a man who goes undercover to help out a son facing drug charges – and Broken City – the Allen Hughes project where Mark Wahlberg plays a private investigator trailing the philandering wife played by Catherine Zeta-Jones of a politician played by Russell Crowe.

In Broken City, Pepper’s character will be running for mayor against Crowe’s, and he’ll no doubt pull from his Emmy-winning performance as Bobby Kennedy to sharpen his role. There’s not much to say beyond all of this because Pepper is amazing. If he and William Fichtner co-starred in something together, I’d watch it 18 times. So, yes, this news is reason to celebrate.
