Dustin went a little nutso when the cast of Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings was first announced, and I can’t say I blame him. Christian Bale, Ben Kingsley, Sigourney Weaver (is this a surprise Alien sequel?), Aaron Paul, Joel Edgerton, Game of Thrones’ Indira Varma (where the hell is Pedro?), John Turturro and Ben Mendelsohn — shit — sign me up and tie me down! Filming took place in Spain and the Canary Islands, and while Bale marveled over the gorgeous beaches and his “fascinating character,” tales of Aaron Paul gagging over the stench of camel poop kept the actors entertained.
