'The Runaways' Lands Two New Cast Members

'The Runaways' Lands Two New Cast Members-photo

Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning have two new actors joining them in the cast of their Joan Jett biopic The Runaways, which started filming in Los Angeles last week.

Tatum O'Neal has been cast as Dakota's character's mother, according to Life & Style. Tatum is the daughter of Ryan O'Neal and step-daughter of the late Farrah Fawcett, and is also the youngest actress to have ever won an Academy Award. (That'd be for her role in 1973's Paper Moon, not her performance during her drug bust last year.)

In addition, LatinoReview.com has revealed that Alia Shawkat has joined the cast, as 18-year-old bass player Robin. Alia played Mae "Maeby" Funke in the cult-hit comedy series Arrested Development.

    Amen - I will only see this movie because of Alia Skewkat - She was brilliant in AD - and I'm hoping for other full-freckled girls out there besides LL who is a serious joke.

    I've been just dying to see Alia Shawkat in something! Maeby was a brilliant character, and she sure pulled it off perfectly. For her alone will I see this movie.
