Breaking Bad's Charles Baker to Star in Comedy Sci-fi ELEVEN ELEVEN
Baker is probably best known as the much-loved meth addict Skinny Pete on AMC's Breaking Bad but his diverse career includes the Sundance hit Ain't Them Bodies Saints, the Terence Malick-directed To The Wonder, and the highly-regarded Temple Grandin. In 2014, he is slated to play opposite Reese Witherspoon in the FOX Searchlight Drama Wild.
Says Baker: "Eleven Eleven is exactly what I wanted for my first lead role. The script is awesome!"
Eleven Eleven will be the feature directorial debut for Chris Redish, whose student short The Blacksmith and the Carpenter, starring Robert Picardo (Star Trek:Voyager) and Tony Curtis (Some Like It Hot), found wide festival recognition.
The project will be largely filmed on location in Sedona, AZ - believed by many to be the UFO capital of the world.
Director Redish commented, "I'm a big fan of Breaking Bad, so it's a thrill to be working with Charles. I am very grateful to him for accepting the role, and to our casting director Helen McCready, and Charles's manager, Alex Czuleger with Open Entertainment, for making this possible."
Eleven Eleven Consulting Producer, Chris 'Doc' Wyatt (Napoleon Dynamite) remarked: "Charles Baker's work on Splinter and his contributions to the series Breaking Bad prove that he's an actor that can immerse himself in a character and bring both humor and also gravitas. We're pleased to have him in the Eleven Eleven family."
Looby Lou Life Productions and Eleven Eleven Movie, LLC will begin production of Eleven Eleven in December 2013.
