Jamie King joins Cutman!
Jaime King has been cast as the female lead in Cutman, the indie drama starring Ray Liotta that comes from producer-director Michael Mailer.
The script, written by Tiffany Heath, follows a retired boxer who is dying of cancer and working as an enforcer for low-level mobsters. He is haunted by the death of his “cutman” and just wants to die in peace before he meets a junkie and her daughter as they all search for meaning and revenge.
King will play the junkie Josie Ray Broussard, a haunted shell of a soul, with a fragile body, left horrifically traumatized by the abuse she endured as a child. Tarnished by heroin addiction and hard living, Josie is a drifter who travels with her 10-year-old daughter, Stryk, wherever the wind blows them. She raises Stryk in the best way she knows how — to learn the pain and harshness of sheer survival using her own version of brutal tough love — to make her point. Josie, who seems to revel in the misery where she and her daughter now live, uses her feminine wiles and fierce will to complete a dark mission of revenge and redemption.
