Casting Room: Paula Patton is Going to War(craft)


Before new shows and movies are on your radar, they’re being planned, executed, and put into motion by production teams far and wide. Each week, Glam is going to give you the rundown on your favorite celebrities and their new gigs, from Hollywood’s rising stars to Broadway’s top talents. Welcome to the Casting Room.

Don’t be alarmed when Paula Patton comes armed and ready to kick some… After Jumping the Broom in 2011 and busting 2 Guns in 2013, Patton will take on the role of Garona in 2016’s highly-anticipated Warcraft. According to movie notes, she’s “a strong-willed survivor who is caught between the Alliance and the Horde and must decide where her true loyalty lies.” Something her soon-to-be ex-husband Robin Thicke couldn’t seem to master.
