Jackie Earle Haley Boards The RoboCop Train, Jay Baruchel Circles The Station

Jackie Earle Haley Boards The RoboCop Train, Jay Baruchel Circles The StationJoel Kinnaman may have landed the lead for Jose Padilha's RoboCop remake, but adjusting to life as a superhumanly strong cyborg justice-dispensing machine doesn't happen overnight. Joining a cast that already includes Gary Oldman, Hugh Laurie and Samuel L. Jackson, Watchmen's Jackie Earle Haley has now been cast as Maddox, a military expert who trains Alex Murphy in the art of military tactics.

According to the exclusive over at Deadline, Jay Baruchel (most recently seen in Cosmopolis) is also circling a lead role. With little more than a year to go until RoboCop's August 9th 2013 release date, filming will commence soon and with it we should find out the final names in the cast line-up.
