From Spinal Tap through to Best in Show, Waiting for Guffman and For Your Consideration Christopher Guest’s cinematic exploration of the strange and unusual has made for some hilarious viewing.
Taking on the competitive world of sports mascots Guest’s new film reunites him some of his regular actors, and is set to play at Toronto next month. Netflix has acquired the rights to show to film on their service where it will land on the 13th of October.
The cast is quite something – ready? (Deep breath…) It stars Jane Lynch, Parker Posey, Fred Willard, Ed Begley, Jr., Christopher Moynihan, Don Lake, Brad Williams, Zach Woods, Chris O’Dowd, Matt Griesser, Susan Yeagley, Sarah Baker, Tom Bennett, Kerry Godliman, Bob Balaban, Jennifer Coolidge, Michael Hitchcock, Maria Blasucci, John Michael Higgins, and Jim Piddock.
Guest wrote the film with Jim Piddock and he’s the one behind the camera, casting his wry glance at the inanities some corners of the human race concern themselves with.
