Kevin Bacon cast in Whitey Bulger film 'Black Mass' and 'Cop Car'

By Kyle Johnson,

Kevin Bacon is looking to keep busy this summer by filming a total of three films, Black Mass, Cop Car and the recently wrapped 6 Miranda Drive, before he returns to work on Fox's The Following.

Despite having supposedly started to film, the Whitey Bulger Black Mass flick continues to add to the cast, with Bacon the latest addition, Deadline is first reporting.

Bacon will play FBI Special Agent Charles McGuire, who runs the Boston field office where Agent John Connolly worked as he fed information to the mobster, played by Johnny Depp, in order to help him avoid capture.

The Scott Cooper-directed flick keeps adding cast members, even though filming started. In late May, Benedict Cumberbatch and Adam Scott joined the project. The British actor's casting though is understandable, as he was brought in to replace Guy Pearce, who cited scheduling conflicts.

In addition to that film, Bacon also stepped into the starring role in the indie film Cop Car. In that project, he will play a corrupt cop on the hunt for two kids who stole his car and he has a dead body hidden in the trunk.

He also wrapped, not too long ago, on thriller 6 Miranda Drive, directed by Greg McLean, about his character returning home from a Grand Canyon trip with a supernatural force along for the ride.
