Edgar Ramirez to Play Jennifer Lawrence's Husband in 'Joy'!

Edgar Ramirez is set to play the husband to Jennifer Lawrence‘s character in the upcoming biopic Joy!

The 37-year-old Venezuelan actor is a Golden Globe nominated actor best known for his work in the acclaimed mini-series Carlos. He has also been seen in Zero Dark Thirty, Deliver Us from Evil, and will star in the upcoming Point Break remake.

In Joy, which will be directed by David O. Russell, Jennifer plays Joy Mangano, “a fixture on the Home Shopping Network with her many inventions, whose Miracle Mop was her ticket to fame and fortune. She began her inventing as a teen and kept on dreaming and tinkering while still a single mom raising three kids,” according to THR.

Edgar will play her dapper and philandering husband, whom she eventually divorces. Robert De Niro will be in the film as her father.

    I thought Bradley Cooper was going to be in the film? Was he a possible candidate as her husband?

  • Spencer

    No, his role in the movie, if he’s doing it, is to play a QVC executive.

  • Courtney

    I see. Thank you!

    Hmmm weird choice I thought Leo might have done it but I guess he’s waiting for his own David O Russell film. I don’t know anything about him but let’s hope he doesn’t ruin things ! And yes Bradley will be in it and hopefully Melissa Leo will be in it too.

    David O. Russell really wants that Oscar which he probably might never get. Lawrence is playing a mother/wife once again, she is starting to get pigeonholed into that type of role and in my opinion I have yet to find her believable in that role.

  • Carlos Rodriguez

    Great choice! Edgar is so talented

  • Lola

    He IS a great actor! He will not ruin anything. If the script is no good and there is no chemistry between them, then that is another thing.
    He played Choco in Domino, he was in one of the Bourne movies…. see his work, he is good.

    Why a 37-year-old has to play the husband of a 24-year-old one? Was not there a younger fella?

    He’s a really good actor, I think he will do an incredible job

    agree. I got tired of Russel’s yearly Oscar attempts with Jennifer. this is turning nto a Burton – Depp thing.
