Political drama 13 Hours, the Benghazi movie that Michael Bay is directing for Paramount, is being shot in Malta and Morocco this month, according to The Hollywood Reporter (read full article at URL http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/michael-bays-13-hours-finds-778913 )
The political drama is an adaptation of Mitchell Zuckoff’s book about the 2012 attack on an American compound in Libya that left U.S. ambassador J. Christopher Stevens dead. The story centres on the special forces team that attempted to rescue Stevens.
David Denman, John Krasinski, James Badge Dale, Max Martini and Pablo Schreiber are already part of the team.
Denman will play an elite sniper named Boon.
Denman may be best known for playing the boyfriend of Jenna Fischer’s character, Pam, on NBC’s The Office, with whom he competed for affection with Krasinski’s character, Jim. He also recurred on last season’s NBC series Parenthood.
The actor recently wrapped shooting Joel Edgerton’s untitled thriller with Edgerton, Jason Bateman and Rebecca Hall, and shot a guest-starring role on the second season of HBO’s True Detective.
