Good news for Captain Von Trapp fans, Stratford junkies and anyone with a thing for silver foxes: Christopher Plummer has joined the cast of the hotly anticipated American version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. The Tony winner will play Henrik Vanger, an old man who hires a reporter (played by Daniel Craig) to find out what happened to his missing niece. Having read the book (like everyone else on the planet), we think this is pretty solid casting. Plummer can do mysterious in his sleep, and as far as portraying family patriarchs goes, need we remind you what this man looks like in a pair of lederhosen? Speaking of which, only 29 days till the entire Sound of Music cast reunites on Oprah. Woot!
