Nick Nolte has joined the cast of director Ruben Fleischer's Gangster Squad. The actor joins a very impressive cast that already includes Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, Emma Stone, Mireille Enos, Anthony Mackie, Holt McCallany, Robert Patrick & Giovanni Ribisi. Deadline report that "Nolte will play Bill Parker, the new chief of police in Los Angeles, and the first in a awhile who hasn't been corrupted by Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn). The chief, a Purple Heart recipient at Normandy, is the one who starts the Gangster Squad, a crack team designed to bring down organized crime." The actor recently finished filming Taylor Hackford’s Parker which stared Jason Statham & earlier this month signed on to co-star in Robert Redford’s The Company You Keep.
