Character actor cast in Tesla biopic

Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2013, 8:21 p.m.

Prolific character actor Richard Riehle has been cast to play George Westinghouse in the upcoming biopic about Nikola Tesla.

Reihle, 65, may not have a famous name but his face will be familiar to anyone who's seen “Glory,” “Casino,” “Fried Green Tomatoes,” “The Fugitive,” “Ghosts of Mississippi” and dozens of other movies and TV shows.

The movie, directed by Pittsburgher Michael Anton, is in pre-production and will be shot in Pittsburgh and Belgrade, Serbia. Branko Tomović will play the famed Serbian scientist in “Tesla.”
