Mireille Enos to Make Her Big Screen Debut in ‘World War Z’

By  · Published on April 26th, 2011

Mireille Enos has appeared in Big Love and, now, the AMC series The Killing, but she’ll make her way to theaters in a big way – playing the wife of Brad Pitt’s character in World War Z.

Having never seen her work, I can only say I like the casting on principal. In a world where big budget films (like this one) have to have poster-ready names by the dozen in order to justify their bonds, it’s refreshing to see a relative unknown in what might an important role. According to Deadline Saskatoon, Enos will play Karin Lane, the wife of Gerard Lane (Brad Pitt) who is documenting the world a decade after the zombie invasion. Then again, she might also have a small role as someone he says goodbye to before heading out all over the world to get his story. So, who knows.

Still, it’s better than Jessica Alba in a Lab Coat, right?
