According to an exclusive Hollywood Reporter story, Bradford Cox has agreed to appear in The Dallas Buyers Club. Based on the true story of Ron Woodroof (Matthew McConaughey), the Jean-Marc Vallee film details how the Texas electrician helped the spread of alternative drug treatments for AIDS after his own diagnosis. As for Cox's role in all this, the Deerhunter/Atlas Sound frontman plays the partner of Jared Leto's character, a cross-dresser who is also battling the disease. While the movie is now filming in New Orleans, a stateside release is expected sometime next year.
