Sarah Paulson is gold and right now anything she joins becomes better by association. It was announced that Paulson has been added to the cast of the upcoming J.D. Salinger biopic Rebel in the Rye.
Paulson has been cast as Salinger’s longtime agent Dorothy Olding in the story of the famous literary icon’s life. She joins Nicholas Hoult who is playing Salinger himself, and Victor Garber who is playing Salinger’s father. Kevin Spacey is also in the cast playing Whit Burnett.
According to the New York Times, Olding once destroyed some 500 personal letters between her and Salinger.
