Super 8 and Friday Night Lights star, Kyle Chandler, has reportedly joined the cast of Allen Hughes' (The Book of Eli) directed, star packed political thriller Broken City according to Variety

In the Mark Wahlberg starring flick, Russell Crowe will play a politician who hires Wahlberg's detective to follow his wife. When she turns up dead, the s**t hits the fan epically. Chandler would play someone who works for Barry Pepper's Mayoral candidate, while Catherine Zeta-Jones, Jeffrey Wright,  and Griffin Dunne have also joined the cast, which is shaping up nicely.

Walhberg is really running with the success of The Fighter, which catapulted him to the top of a lot of studio's want lists. He has both the action flick Contraband and the very funny looking Ted awaiting release.
