Big-screen roles for “The Killing” stars

OK, do NOT tell me what happened on “The Killing” Sunday night — I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet, though the suspense is driving me crazy. (Why is this show so addictive? Why would anybody live in a place that rains so much? Why am I suddenly thinking that Sarah’s fiance has some sinister motive?) But, for all you fans of the show, here’s some news, courtesy of New York Magazine’s Vulture blog: Our favorite team of detectives is moving to the big screen (though, alas, not together). Mirielle Enos, who plays gum-chewing gumshoe Sarah Linden, has been cast as Brad Pitt’s wife in the zombie flick “World War Z.” Joel Kinnaman, the Swedish actor who makes weird poetry with Linden as partner Stephen Holder, will join Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds in the thriller “Safe House.” Good for them. Though I’d love to see somebody cast the pair in a romantic comedy . . .
