Steve Coogan joins Paul Rudd and Elizabeth Banks in My Idiot Brother
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
When it was first announced that Paul Rudd was going to be starring in MY IDIOT BROTHER, it was told as if it was going to be a small, independent dramedy and overall, a pretty simple film. I’m not sure what happened to that, because this thing has blown up with a cast that includes the aforementioned Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer, Rashida Jones, Hugh Dancy, Kathryn Hahn, Shirley Knight and Janet Montgomery. Joining that all-star cast is comedian Steve Coogan, who will be playing a “self righteous documentary filmmaker”. No word on how he relates to the rest of the cast.
I’m still confused as to how this movie is going to fit together with so many known actors being involved. The story is about a guy that stays with his three, more successful sisters and they deal with their overbearing mother. Jesse Peretz is directing.
