Billy Crudup, Greg Kinnear and Alan Arkin join The Convincer

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant

Billy Crudup, Greg Kinnear and Alan Arkin have signed on to the drama THE CONVINCER.  The film is about a struggling salesman that comes across a rare violin.  Jill Sprecher will direct the independent film from a script she wrote with Karen Sprecher.  Shooting starts next week.  It’s being dubbed a “crime drama”, but unless the salesman stole the violin, I’m not sure that’s an accurate description.

Billy Crudup and Greg Kinnear are two actors that I’ve always really liked, but I thought never lived up to their potential.  Much like his costar Kate Hudson, Crudup has never been able to match his performance in ALMOST FAMOUS .  A story about a rare violin probably isn’t going to help their cause any.
