First look at ‘Spotlight’ movie cast
The movie won’t be out for some time, but a photo from the set of “Spotlight” has surfaced online. The movie about the Globe’s Pulitzer Prize-winning series about sexual abuse in the Catholic Church has an A-list cast that includes Liev Schreiber as then-editor in chief Marty Baron, Michael Keaton as Spotlight team editor Walter Robinson, Mark Ruffalo as reporter Michael Rezendes, Rachel McAdams as reporter Sacha Pfeiffer, John Slattery as deputy managing editor Ben Bradlee Jr., and Brian d’Arcy James as staffer Matt Carroll. The photo appeared online Friday and was widely retweeted, including by Baron, who’s now the editor at The Washington Post. “1st official image from #spotlightthemovie re @bostonglobe probe into cover-up of sexual abuse in Catholic Church,” Baron tweeted.
