Jennifer Aniston will act in indie drama Cake
Jennifer Aniston has signed up to act as the character of Claire Simmons, a woman who becomes fascinated by the suicide of Nina, a woman in her chronic pain support group.
Daniel Barnz, who will direct the movie, said, "Of the zillions of Jennifer Aniston fans, I might be the biggest one of all. I've especially loved her more dramatic performances, and I can't wait to watch her tackle a role that has such a brilliantly funny voice and so much raw pain (hats off to writer Patrick Tobin)." He continue: "Patrick has penned a stunning script, and there’s no doubt Jennifer will amaze in a role that exploits both her comic and dramatic abilities. Daniel always gets terrific performances from his cast and brings great visual panache to his films.”
