Uma Thurman

It’ll be here first appearance in a Lars von Trier movie, but she’s had experience working with demanding directors. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Uma Thurman has joined the already-stellar cast of Nymphomaniac, which is currently filming in Cologne, Germany.

No word yet on what role the actress is taking, and the door is wide open here because the story spans the entire romantic life of one woman (played by Charlotte Gainsbourg). Options abound. Regardless, Thurman is a strong addition to any movie, but it’s likely von Trier may have her doing things no filmmaker has demanded before even though she’s rocked around in the Pussy Wagon killing everyone and got her start with Terry Gilliam.

Thurman will be seen next in the more conventional Playing For Keeps in December and in the forthcoming non-conventional comedy Movie 43 (playing Lois Lane no less). What’s interesting (and encouraging) here is how much of the genre map she’s covering. After all, more Uma Thurman is never a bad thing, and if she’s in a current career mode of stretching herself, this roster and von Trier are definitely solid ways to do it.
