Malin Akerman, Kat Dennings and Jane Seymour join Friendsgiving!
Billions co-star Malin Akerman, 2 Broke Girls alum Kat Denningsand Jane Seymour (Let’s Get Physical) are set to topline the ensemble comedy Friendsgiving, from first-time film director Nicol Paone. Akerman also will produce with her The Heartbreak Kid co-star Ben Stiller via his Red Hour shingle, alongside Nicky Weinstock and Haroon Saleem.
Written by Paone, the story follows Molly (Akerman), a glamorous, newly divorced actor, and Abby (Dennings), her recently-dumped lesbian best friend, with Seymour as Helen, Molly’s gorgeous Swedish mother. Together, along with their motley crew of close friends and strange acquaintances, they host a dysfunctional, comical and chaotic Thanksgiving dinner.
The pic also co-stars Aisha Tyler as Lauren, Deon Cole as her husband Dan, Ryan Hansen as Molly’s ex-boyfriend Gunnar, Chelsea Peretti as the new-age shaman Claire, Christine Taylor as Brianne and Wanda Sykes and Margaret Cho as Abby’s Fairy Gaymothers.
