Will ArnettIn an apparent attempt to do film journalists and their readers a favor, Red Crown Productions, Elliptical Films, and Sandia Media announced today that a whole bunch of people are joining their new movie, Goats, and this is good news for you, Reader, because now we won't announce each individual hire with annoying little articles over the next few months of pre-production.

Anyway, here's the five actors: David Duchovny, Vera Farmiga, Keri Russell, Minnie Driver, and Will Arnett. Awesome, right? Yeah, we agree. Goats, which marks the directorial debut of acting coach Christopher Neil, is a comedy that already featured Graham Phillips and Ty Burrell as part of the cast. Check out the official hilarious synopsis below.

The coming of age story follows 15 year-old, Ellis (Phillips) as he moves from Wendy, his flakey, new age mother’s (Farmiga) South-Western home to an East Coast prep school where his estranged father Frank (Burrell) was once a star student.  For Ellis, this means leaving behind the only real dad he has ever known, Goat Man (Duchovny), his pot-smoking, goat herding mentor, and ultimately needing to evaluate his new prep school lifestyle that’s in stark contrast to his stoner upbringing.  Rounding out the cast are Keri Russell as Frank’s new wife, Minnie Driver as Wendy’s best friend and yogic advisor Johanna, and Will Arnett as Wendy’s boyfriend Bennett.

Now, who's ready to see David Duchovny as Goat Man? Or Minnie Driver as a yogic advisor? Or, perhaps most importantly, Will Arnett just being Will Arnett? This guy is.

Goats starts filming in February.
