USA Today has a photo article featuring five new photos from the film including everyone's first look at Gary Oldman's character, Carnegie. In addition to the photos there are also quotes from Denzel Washington and Oldman about their experiences so far making the film. Washington shed his extra 60 pounds of weight that he packed on to play his transit supervisor character in the remake of The Taking of Pelham 123 so he could play the thin and ropy Eli. We also learn that it was Washington's son that convinced him to take the part.

Michael Gambon has now joined the cast. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gambon's character is "one half of a strangle couple that holds onto old traditions in the futuristic tale," which we take means that his Eli character will be nothing like his Albus Dumbledore from the last three Harry Potter movies.
