By Kyle Johnson,

The cast for Tim Blake Nelson's Anesthesia just got a whole lot bigger, as several more actors were hired, joining the already cast Kristen Stewart.

Deadline first reported that the cast for the indie film has been filling out, as well as information on who everyone will play in the movie.

The movie follows a group of New Yorkers who come together after a Columbia University philosophy professor is brutally mugged. Sam Waterston has joined the cast as Walter Zarrow, the unfortunate professor. Nelson, who is also directing, will play his son.

Glenn Close will play Marcia Zarrow, the professor's wife. Corey Stoll plays an investment banker who witnesses the mugging and Gretchen Mol will play his wife. Stewart has been cast in a supporting role as the professor's student. Others cast include Michael K. Williams, Jessica Hecht, K. Todd Freeman and Mickey Sumner.

It was previously reported that in addition to Anesthesia, the Twilight actress also was cast in the female lead role in American Ultra.

She will play Jesse Eisenberg's girlfriend as they have to deal with suddenly becoming government targets due to Eisenberg's character's past.
