Tom Hanks Posts TwitPic of Larry Crowne Cast (So Far)
03.29.10 by BJSprecher
Until this past weekend, Tom Hanks and his Charlie Wilson's War co-star, Julia Roberts, were the only two actors known to be attached to star in Larry Crowne, Hanks' first directorial effort since That Thing You Do in 1996. But, on Saturday, Hanks "announced" a number of cast additions via a star-studded TwitPic titled "The Larry Crowne Casting Wall (incomplete)."
Can you identify all of the actors?
If you couldn't figure them all out, you're not alone. We were only able to identify about one-third of the actors at first glance, and even FirstShowing missed one in its list.
Top Row: Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Cedric the Entertainer, Rami Malek, George Takei, Dale Dye
Middle Row: Peter Scolari, Bryan Cranston, Wilmer Valderrama, Taraji P. Henson, Malcolm Barret, UNKNOWN, Bob Stephenson
Bottom Row: Jon Seda, Maria Canals Barrera, Holmes Osborne
Hanks first conceived the idea for Larry Crowne back in 2006 and hired Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) to write a first draft of the screenplay, then titled Talk of the Town. The comedy tells the story of "a man (Hanks) forced to reinvent himself and find a new career as he navigates the second act of his life." Production is scheduled to begin in April, with more cast announcements expected soon.
