Hugh Dancy joins Paul Rudd and Elizabeth Banks in My Idiot Brother
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Paul Rudd’s upcoming comedy MY IDIOT BROTHER rounded out the cast today with Hugh Dancy, Kathryn Hahn, Janet Montgomery and Shirley Knight joining the cast that already included Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Rashida Jones, Adam Scott and Emily Mortimer. The film revolves around struggling idealist (Rudd) that stays at the homes of his three more successful and ambitious sisters (Banks, Deschanel, Mortimer) while dealing with their overbearing mother. The mother was the last major part to be cast and she will be played by Shirley Knight. Dancy and Montgomery will play acquaintances of the sisters while Hahn will play Rudd’s ex-girlfriend.
I’m still not completely sold on the premise of the film, but I do like the cast, even if it is getting a little crowded. I think the issue I have with the story is that it doesn’t seem to have a point, other than watching a guy get annoyed by his three siblings.
