Jennifer Garner finds “Odd” husband in Joel Edgerton


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: A friend joked with me after screening both riveting Aussie thrillers “The Square” and “Animal Kingdom” that the Edgerton boys – brothers Joel and Nash – were poised to take over the film industry. I laughed and agreed. We just didn’t know how quickly it would happen.

The Edgertons have stayed busy in Hollywood over the years. Nash primarily was employed as a stunt man on such massive productions as “Knight & Day,” “Superman Returns” and the “Matrix” trilogy, while Joel cut his teeth as a character actor. But Nash is edging toward directing, having helmed the taut “Square,” while Joel continues to add impressive acting credits to his resume.

He’s about to add one more.

Joel will join Jennifer Garner in the fantasy drama “The Odd Life of Timothy Green,” according to the Hollywood Reporter. Edgerton will play Garner’s husband in a strange-sounding story of a childless couple who plant their desires for a baby in a box in their backyard. “Dan in Real Life” director Peter Hedges will helm the film, which is expected to begin production in the early stages of 2011.

Is this the breakout role Edgerton has waited for? Or will he already be a star when “Odd Life” comes out thanks to turns in the planned remake of “The Thing,” which will come out first? Needless to say, Edgerton is a star on the rise. We’ll continue to chart his ascension.
