We are here to introduce the Poker Face cast for the ones who are curious about the actors playing their unique roles. Poker Face is a thriller film that Russell Crowe is directing and is not to be confused with Rian Johnson’s planned series of the same name, and further raising the stakes is the fact that the Gladiator actor co-wrote the movie’s script and acts in it as well. In the Poker Face cast Russell Crowe plays a tech billionaire who invites his friends to his opulent estate for a high-stakes poker game, but when a killer is discovered creeping around the house, a thrilling game of gambling turns deadly.
The list of well-known poker-based films is extensive and includes timeless works like Havana by Sydney Pollack, Maverick by Richard Donner, and Molly’s Game, and with its thrilling and high-tension plot, Crowe’s latest thriller drama might also be added to that list.
When the tech billionaire host reveals a complex plan to get revenge for the ways they have deceived him over the years, an annual high-stakes poker tournament amongst childhood friends devolves into pandemonium, however, as his preparations come to fruition, a crew of criminals comes up with a scheme of their own to get into the estate by pretending it is unoccupied.
A night of dread is easily survived by the old buddies thanks to their rapid cooperation and years of gameplay, all thanks to the Poker Face cast’s work. Now let’s see who we watched in the film.
