Watertown-bred actress Eliza Dushku, who was spotted at an event at Brandeis recently with her mom, has a new gig, according to the Hollywood Reporter. She has joined the cast of “Midnight Rider,” a biopic about Allman Brothers singer-organist Gregg Allman, in which Allman will be played by William Hurt. According to the trade publication, Dushku will play the woman who inspired the song “Whipping Post,” which Allman first recorded when he was 21. Randall Miller, who made 2013’s “CBGB,” is directing the project.
