Bradley Whitford To Play Role In Godzilla: King Of The Monsters

Emmy Award-winning The West Wing veteran Bradley Whitford is the latest actor to join the cast of Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

Boasting an extensive amount of credits in both film and TV, Whitford has made appearances on such programs as Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, The Good Guys, Trophy Wife, and Transparent, the last of which garnered him his second Emmy Award. On the film front, he has played roles in Philadelphia, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, The Cabin in the Woods, and Saving Mr. Banks. Most recently, he appeared in the smash hit thriller Get Out.

Whitford’s casting comes immediately in the wake of the addition of Thomas Middleditch to the film. The two actors will act opposite such talent as Millie Bobby Brown, Kyle Chandler, and Vera Farmiga and be directed by Michael Dougherty.

Per Superherohype, the source of this story:

Bradley Whitford, known to many for his role on The West Wing, recently appeared in Jordan Peele’s Get Out. He’s no stranger to monsters, either, having played one of the lead technicians in Drew Goddard’s 2012 postmodern horror tale, TheCabin in the Woods.

King of the Monsters is part of the Legendary and Warner Bros. cinematic MonsterVerse, which includes, in addition to Godzilla and the recent Kong: Skull Island, the upcoming Godzilla vs Kong feature film, set for a May 22, 2020 release.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
