Julia Garner, Juno Temple Join ‘Dirty John’ at Bravo

Juno Temple and Julia Garner have joined the cast of the upcoming Bravo series “Dirty John,” Variety has learned.

Bravo gave “Dirty John” a two-season order in January. The scripted anthology series is based on the series of articles published by the Los Angeles Times’ last fall about a charismatic con man, John Meehan, and the consequences of an ill-fated romance. Connie Britton will star as Debra Newell, the single mother who fell in love with Meehan, who will be played by Eric Bana.

Temple and Garner will play Newell’s daughters Veronica and Terra respectively. They join previously announced supporting cast member Jean Smart, who will play Newell’s mother Arlane.

Temple will soon be reprising her role as Thistlewit in Disney’s “Maleficent 2.” She also appeared in “Black Mass” opposite Johnny Depp, and starred in the HBO series “Vinyl.” She recently wrapped shooting “Lost Transmissions” opposite Simon Pegg. Her other credits include “Far From The Madding Crowd,” “Away,” “Maleficent,” “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For,” “Horns,” “The Dark Knight Rises,” and more.


Maleficent 2 Receives A 2020 Release Date From Disney

Disney put a new spin on the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale, with a focus put on the “evil” witch in 2014’s Maleficent. The film went on to become Angelina Jolie’s highest grossing film to date, taking home $785.5 million from the worldwide box office.

A sequel to the film was officially announced in June 2015 but cameras didn’t begin rolling until May of this year. The sequel will feature Jolie reprising the titular character and she’ll be joined by a returning Elle Fanning as Princess Aurora, and Juno Temple, Imelda Staunton, and Lesley Manville as a contemporary reimagining of the fairy godmothers.

Newcomers to the cast include Michelle Pfeiffer as Queen Ingrith and Ed SKrein and Chiwetel Ejiofor in undisclosed roles.

The sequel will hit theaters on May 29, 2020. That far out, there’s not much competition surrounding the date other than King Kong vs Godzilla (May 22, 2020) but that’s sure to change.
