Sofia Coppola - Newcomer Cast As Lead In Sofia Coppola's 'Bling Ring' Movie

Director Sofia Coppola has cast an unknown actor to portray the alleged ringleader of Hollywood's infamous 'Bling Ring' gang in a movie adaptation of the teenage burglars' exploits.
The Lost In Translation filmmaker's new project is based on the true story of a group of youths who stole from the Hollywood homes of stars including Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom and Audrina Patridge in 2008 and 2009.
Harry Potter star Emma Watson has already signed on as one of the gang's key members, and now Coppola has added actor Israel Broussard to the film to play the part of Nicholas Prugo, who confessed to stealing designer clothing, jewellery and cash from the stars' homes.
Broussard has previously appeared on coming-of-age drama Flipped and U.S. TV comedy Romantically Challenged.
Knocked Up actress Leslie Mann and American Horror Story star Taissa Farmiga, the younger sister of Up In The Air's Vera, have also joined the cast, alongside acting newcomers Claire Pfister, Katie Chang and Georgia Rock, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Prugo struck a plea deal with prosecutors last week (02Mar12) and will serve two years behind bars after pleading no contest to breaking into Lohan and Patridge's properties. In exchange, he must testify against three other people suspected of helping him steal from the stars.
