Deadline reports that Kyle Chandler has joined the cast of Carol. Directed by Todd Haynes and starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, the film focuses on two women in fifties New York City. Blanchett's character wants to get a divorce but is scared she'll lose her daughter if she does. Chandler will play the husband she wants to leave. As hard as it is to imagine Chandler playing an undesirable husband, at least he's seemingly not playing another cop.
