John Goodman and More Join ‘Gigantic’

3 03 2008

The more I hear about this film, the more excited I get about it. More great names have signed for Gigantic this week, including one of my personal alltime favorites, John Goodman. We get the news from Yahoo:

” Ed Asner, Jane Alexander and John Goodman are joining Paul Dano and Zooey Deschanel in the indie romantic comedy “Gigantic.” Dano, in theaters with “There Will Be Blood,” plays Brian, a depressed mattress salesman whose quest to adopt a Chinese baby is sidetracked when he falls for Happy (Deschanel).

Asner is set as Brian’s pot-smoking, gangsta rap-loving father, and Alexander as his long-suffering mother. Goodman will play Happy’s brilliant, domineering dad. Director Matt Aselton starts shooting the indie film Monday in New York.”

In my opinion, it is nearly impossible for John Goodman to do any wrong and I must say that the role sounds perfect for him. I’m even willing to give Speed Racer (I think it looks absolutely ridiculous) a chance, simply because he is in it. Gigantic already had my attention and the addition of Goodman can only make it better. Also joining the cast are the two veterans, Ed Asner and Jane Alexander, both of whom are beyond qualified to be in any film. The story and the characters sound great, and I cannot wait to hear more.
