Very funny writer/professional neurotic Larry David has finally announced who will be joining him in his new it’s-not-TV-it’s-HBO movie! And according to Deadline, the cast list is looking pretty awesome. The film, titled Clear History, will feature a veritable smorgasbord of big-named celeb-os. This includes Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Bill Hader, Kate Hudson, Phillip Baker Hall, Danny McBride, Eva Mendes, Amy Ryan and JB Smoove.
David will also star in the film, who’s huge cast is only upstage by how hugely-complicated (in an undoubtedly hilarious way) everyone’s relationships seem to be! Don’t believe me? Let’s break it down for you.
Nathan Flomm (David) is a former marketing executive at a start-up electric car company who gets into an argument with his boss Will Haney (Hamm) before being publicly humiliated when he walked away from his 10% of the company that’s now worth billions. Ten years later, his marriage is kaput and his reputation is ruined, so Nathan does what any normal person would do: change his identity. He moves to a small island off the coast of Massachusetts and calls himself Rolly DaVore, hoping to live a far simpler life. But then–of course–his former boss shows up to renovate his summer mansion (insult, meet injury!) so Rolly Nathan (oh right, same guy) decides to seek revenge and drive his old boss off the island. Seems simple enough so far, right? OK, now here’s everyone else’s part of the pie:
Hader will play Rags, the friend/henchman (what are friends if not henchmen, really) of a local quarry owner (Joe Stumpo, played by Keaton) who agrees to help Rolly. Hall will play McKenzie, a local construction foreman who is duped into hiring Rolly and then regrets it. Hudson will play Rhonda, wife of Haney, who strikes up a “special friendship” (Deadline’s words, not ours) with Rolley/Nathan (we’re not really sure which iteration of the man she knows). McBride will play Frank, Rolly’s best friend. Mendes will play Jennifer, a local resident who takes things a bit too literally and causes more issues for Rolly. HIJINKS! Ryan will play Wendy, Rolly’s (or maybe Nathan’s?) ex-girlfriend with a secret. JB Smoove will play Jaspar, the ex-boyfriend of a local girl who blames Rolly for the demise of his relationship because of course Rolly ruined everything. This is Larry David we’re talking about here, folks. The film is slated to begin filming this fall in Massachusetts.
