Casting for Scott Cooper's Crazy Heart follow-up, the revenge tale Out of the Furnace, is just getting silly. Now Willem Dafoe is in the mix, alongside star Christian Bale and supporting actors Casey Affleck, Forest Whitaker, Woody Harrelson, Zoe Saldana, and Sam Shepard. Annnd we're maxed out on actor-liness. That's it. If Daniel Day-Lewis comes knocking, tell him we had to lock it down.
