Douglas Urbanski has boarded José Padilha's reboot of the classic action film RoboCop.

The actor/producer will play the Mayor of Detroit alongside Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, and Jackie Earle Haley.

Douglas Urbanski is best known for running the DMG talent management company. Here's what he had to say about taking the role in the film.

"I think every agent, every manager should do this to see what the other side is like. This way, they will never think a client is crazy when they get a call from the set with crazy demands."

The manager also played the role of Larry Summers in David Fincher's The Social Network.
