John Michael Higgins joins Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson in We Bought a Zoo
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Funnyman John Michael Higgins has joined the film WE BOUGHT A ZOO from director Cameron Crowe. The film is based off the incredible true story of a man that bought a run down zoo and dealt with the plethora of problems the zoo brought him. Matt Damon will play the rookie zookeeper and Scarlett Johansson will play his wife, who is suffering from brain cancer. No word on who Higgins will be playing. The film is a nice departure for Cameron Crowe and is one of his more ambitious projects, combining humor, drama and plenty of exotic animals.
Along with Higgins, Damon and Johansson, the film stars Thomas Hayden Church, Elle Fanning, Patrick Fugit and Angus Macfadyen. Higgins has starred in numerous movies and TV shows, but I’ll always remember him for his guest spot on ‘Ally McBeal’ where he played a rival lawyer that kept repeating the phrase “I’m not comfortable with that”.
