Shutter Island has it’s head physician.

Dennis Lehane’s Shutter Island is already off to an impressive start, with Leonardo DiCaprio (as Teddy Daniels) and Mark Ruffalo (Chuck Aule) playing the leads and Martin Scorsese directing.

But they have now added another very impressive name to the cast: Oscar winner Sir Ben Kingsley (Ghandi, Sexy Beast, House of Sand and Fog, Lucky Number Slevin) has signed on to play Dr. Joseph Cawley, the medical director of the Ashecliffe Hospital for the criminally insane. Kingsley won an Oscar for his portrayal of Ghandi and has been nominated three other times.
