Ron Howard sure is making some savvy casting moves for his upcoming film "Frost/Nixon" based on the play by Peter Morgan.  Hollywood Reporter announced that Sam Rockwell ("Confessions of a Dangerous Mind"), Toby Jones ("Infamous" and "The Painted Veil") and Matthew Macfayden ("Pride and Prejudice") have all joined the film. 

Rockwell is playing award-winning journalist James Reston Jr., the head researcher who helps Frost prep for the interviews.  Jones will portray legendary Hollywood dealmaker Swifty Lazar, who negotiates the deal with Frost on behalf of Nixon. Macfadyen plays John Burt, a journalist for a weekly British television show.

The film will begin shooting in late summer with Morgan also writing the screenplay.
