He'll next be seen in "Kill Your Darlings," playing the ill-fated David Kammerer in the 1940s-set tale. The film, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January and is set to open in October, centers on a real-life murder case that touched the lives of Beat greats Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs.
He's also set to star alongside Sam Shepard in "Cold in July," director Jim Mickle's adaptation of the Joe Lansdale revenge novel about a man who shoots a burglar and finds his life in danger.
