Andy Garcia Joins Carnahan's "Smokin'" Ensemble

Variety brings word that Andy Garcia will climb aboard director Joe Carnahan's "Smokin' Aces," am action-comedy that's already packing some solid star power.

"Garcia will join Jeremy Piven, Ryan Reynolds, Alicia Keys and Ben Affleck in the action comedy about an illusionist who snitches on the mob and has hitmen after him. Garcia will play the FBI director who tries to keep the cocky entertainer around long enough to testify. Universal and Working Title produce."

Joe Carnahan is the man behind such flicks as "Blood, Guts, Bullets and Octane" and "Narc."

Garcia playing an FBI director, what an original thought. This movie could be good though and Garcia is a nice addition.

Looked promising until I saw Ben Affleck's name. Maybe someone will bump him off in the first scene!

I would like to see how this movie will turn out. Several sources said this will be kind of like "True Romance." Plus, Carnahan got a mess of stars of all colors: Ben Affleck (Good Will Hunting), Jason Bateman (Arrested Development, R.I.P.), Peter Berg (Corky Romano), Clare Carey (Coach), Don Cheadle (Hotel Rwanda), rapper Common (debut), Andy Garcia (Internal Affairs), Martin Henderson (The Ring), Taraji P. Henson (Hustle & Flow), R&B singer Alicia Keys (debut), Ray Liotta (Goodfellas), Jason Patric (NARC), Jeremy Piven (Entourage), and Ryan Reynolds (Just Friends). And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Go to ( to get the full cast list.
