Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, a bible for Hollywood, we have our first look at “This Is Where I Leave You” which stars basically all of your favorite TV comedians plus Jane Fonda.
Based on a bestselling book by Jonathan Tropper, “TISILY” (gosh it has a long title!!!) tells the story of a family reunited for their father’s funeral.
Along with Jane Fonda (who’ll play the patriarchal mother) the cast includes Tina Fey (30 Rock), Jason Bateman, Adam Driver (Girls), Kathryn Hahn, Ben Schwartz (Parks and Rec), Corey Stoll (House of Cards), Debra Monk (Girls), Timothy Olyphant (Justified), and Aaron Lazar (The Good Wife). Talk about a star-studded cast!!!
While we would be worried about SO many big names packed into a short movie (God knows we don’t need another Valentine’s Day) the successful book tells us that the material is there and the talent will follow.
Check out EW’s quick pic of the cast in all their glory.
