Chris Pine: Bearded Papaya King
A scruffy Chris Pine leaves Papaya King after enjoying a guys’ night out on Thursday (June 2) in Hollywood.
The 30-year-old actor is in talks to star in the upcoming drama, Mud, the L.A. Times reports.
The flick is “a coming-of-age story” that centers “on two 14-year-boys who come across an adult fugitive of the law, the titular Mud (who would be played by Pine) and must help him escape off an island in the Mississippi. The ambiguity of the story lies with Mud, who is both an unsavory and a redemptive character and who teaches the boys as much as he learns from them.”
