Meryl says got Billy 'f-king part' in film

Meryl says got Billy 'f-king part' in film

Meryl Streep had humorously told Billy Magnussen that it was her who got him the "f-king part" in their forthcoming movie 'Into the Woods'. The movie is an alteration of the Broadway musical, which sees the 65-year-old Oscar winner performing an evil witch, depicts Magnussen as Rapunzel's prince, and the 29-year-old actor said the New York Post, that Streep told him that it was all her doing.

It was the first day of practice, the actor said jokingly. Streep had really seen the Broadway actor in the Tony-winning play 'Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike' previously in 2013 and had persuaded for him to land a character in the film, which would be his first big on-screen role. The movie would strike the theaters on December 25, 2014.
