Larry David’s HBO Film Details and New Cast Includes Bill Hader


It looks like that Larry David HBO movie we told you about last month has taken shape, now featuring a slew of all-star names. We already knew that it would contain improv elements like the neurotic comedian’s Curb Your Enthusiasm and would be co-directed with Arrested Development and Superbad’s Greg Mottola. Jon Hamm and Michael Keaton were attached to star, as well. Now, Deadline reports that Bill Hader, Kate Hudson, Phillip Baker Hall, Danny McBride, Eva Mendes, Amy Ryan, and Curb favorite JB Smoove will also be starring in the project, Clear History.

The story follows David’s former marketing exec at an electric car start-up who loses his fortune (after arguing with his boss, played by Hamm), ruins his marriage, and changes his identity so he can start over on a Massachusetts island. The contentious relationship between Hamm and David continues when the company’s head honcho moves to the same town with his wife (played by Kate Hudson). David’s character vows to seek revenge. Hader’s dubious character helps David settle the score. He works for Michael Keaton’s erratic quarry operator. (See the full breakdown of roles on Deadline.) We expected an eccentric cast of characters, and these names definitely inspire us to tune in. How about you?
