Dark Castle thriller "Unknown White Male" has added two more stars to its cast ensemble with the joining in of Diane Kruger and January Jones. Variety has come up with the story, reporting that the Bridget von Hammersmark of "Inglourious Basterds" and the Betty Draper of "Mad Men" have signed on to star opposite leading man Liam Neeson.
