New Film: "The Judge"

Vincent D'Onofrio Joins Robert Downey Jr. for Warner Bros.' 'The Judge'

Vincent D'Onofrio, who starred for a decade in TV's Law & Order: Criminal Intent, has signed on to co-star opposite Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall in The Judge, a Warner Bros. dramedy which David Dobkin is directing.

Downey is on board to star as a successful attorney who returns to his hometown for his mother's funeral only to discover that his estranged father (Duvall), the town's judge, is the murder suspect. The man sets out to discover the truth and along the way reconnects with the family he walked away from years before.

D’Onofrio will play Downey’s older brother.  The movie will be a co-production between Team Downey and Big Kid Pictures.

D’Onofrio has slowly been ramping up his film appearances since Criminal Intent wrapped in 2011. He appears in The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, which premiered at Sundance, and The Tomb, the Sylvester Stallone-Arnold Schwarzenegger action movie which opens September 27.

The actor, repped by UTA and the Collective, just completed the Off-Broadway show Clive opposite Ethan Hawke and Zoe Kazan.

Vincent's role:  Glen - Hank's older brother, he's a tired-eyed former athlete who has turned a bit soft.  Once a sports star who seemed headed for the pros, Glen was sidelined by a serious injury and now owns a tire and rim store in his home town.  Somewhat under his domineering father's thumb, he's dismayed at the fireworks that result when Hank returns to town to defend their dad against a vehicular homicide charge.  As we later learn, Glen shares some shocking secrets with Hank that largely explain Hank's long-time alienation from his father.
