Bill Hader, Eva Mendes, Danny McBride and More Sign Up for Larry David's 'Clear History'Damon Houx |
We've been excited about Larry David's new movie when we first got wind of it, and when Jon Hamm and Michael Keaton joined the cast, we were elated. Now the movie is filled with great actors, and we can't wait.
Today much of the rest of the cast was announced, along with the film's title 'Clear History' and Variety informs us that Hamm, Kate Hudson, Keaton, Amy Ryan, Eva Mendes, Bill Hader, Phillip Baker Hall, JB Smoove and Danny McBride are all signed on.
Variety also provided a synopsis:
After losing a fortune due to a petty argument with his boss, Nathan Flomm (David), a former marketing executive at a start-up electric car company, is publicly humiliated for walking away from his 10% of a company now worth billions.
Ten years later with his marriage over and reputation ruined, Nathan has changed his identity and lives a simple life on a small island off the coast of Massachusetts under the new name of Rolly DaVore. But when his former boss shows up to renovate his summer mansion, Nathan vows to seek his revenge and drive his nemesis off the island.
There's a lot to appreciate about this cast, and even the more serious actors of the bunch, like Mendes and Ryan, have tried their hands at comedy ('The Other Guys' and 'The Office' respectively) before. This looks to be killer. The movie is being done for HBO, with shooting to begin this fall. Hopefully we'll see it sometime next summer.
