Timothy Olyphant And Ben Schwartz Join Shawn Levy's Great Big THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU Party!

Raylan Givens

Beaks here...

Shawn Levy's big-screen adaptation of Jonathan Tropper's THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU is already loaded with impressive talent: Tina Fey, Jane Fonda, Jason Bateman, Rose Byrne, Adam Driver, Corey Stall and Kathryn Hahn. Now, according to Deadline, they're adding the very funny Ben Schwartz and Raylan Givens himself, Timothy Olyphant!

The ensemble comedy is about four siblings who, at the request of their recently deceased father, reunite for a weeklong stay at their childhood home. Olyphant will play Fey's brain-damaged ex-boyfriend, while Schwartz will co-star as a straining-to-be-hip rabbi. Though I've yet to like a Shawn Levy-directed comedy, you'd have to work really hard to fuck up with this cast. The screenplay is by Tropper, though I wonder if Fey will be able to resist doing a pass at some point.
