Kevin Smith assembles Red State cast… Kevin Smith has assembled the cast for his horror project Red State. Melissa Leo, Dermot Mulroney, Kyle Gallner, Michael Angarano and Steven Root have all been approached to star in the picture. The actors would join Grindhouse’s Michael Parks, who is already attached to star as a pastor inspired by Westboro Baptist Church’s Fred Phelps. Phelps sparked controversy for his anti-gay protests and claims that natural disasters and terrorist attacks are God’s punishment for a society that tolerates homosexuality. Filming is expected to star this September.
