Tory Kittles has joined the cast of Olympus Has Fallen, Nu Image/Millennium’s White House-set action thriller starring Gerard Butler.

The cast already includes Aaron Eckhart, Angela Bassett, Cole Hauser, Ashley Judd, Radha Mitchell, Robert Forster, Melissa Leo and Rick Yune.

The script sees Butler playing an unlikely Secret Service agent trying to stop Korean terrorists who have taken over the White House and take the president (Eckhart) hostage.

Kittles will play a member of the President’s security details.

Kittles will be seen in the Australian-made film The Sapphires, which the Weinstein Co. picked up at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. He is also one of the male leads in Steel Magnolias, Lifetime’s remake of the 1980s classic being produced by Craig Zadan and Neal Meron and  starring Queen Latifah, Jill Scott, Phylicia Rashad and Alfre Woodard. The movie will air this fall.
