Jennifer Coolidge (”American Pie” films) is joining the cast of Gentlemen Broncos, Jared Hess’ comedy being produced by Mike White and Ben LeClair’s Ripcord. Michael Angarano, Sam Rockwell and Jemaine Clement are starring in the movie, which follows a high school outcast who attends a camp for writers. There, his story gets ripped off by a legendary fantasy novelist. Coolidge is playing the mother of the teen (Angarano).
Coolidge is a funny lady, and plays a sultry, whorish cougar. She fits the mother role perfectly for a comedy and her addition to the cast is wise. I like the synopsis for Gentlemen Broncos. A few months ago, news of this production welled up interest within me. Dueling fantasy writers has hilarious potential for a film and I certainly am looking forward to trailers, set shots and updates. The addition of Coolidge has stoked my interest and we will see how this one plays out.
