Larry David, creator of "Seinfeld" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm," has penned an HBO original movie that features quite the cast. "Clear History" will star David, be directed by Greg Mottola (from "Superbad" and "Adventureland" fame), and will also feature Bill Hader, Jon Hamm, Danny McBride, Phillip Baker Hall, Kate Hudson, Michael Keaton, Eva Mendes, Amy Ryan, and JB Smoove. So overall, Larry David has put together a cast full of names you may have heard of.
[David's character Nathan Flomm is] a former marketing executive at a start-up electric car company who, after losing a fortune due to a petty argument with his boss, is publicly humiliated for walking away from his 10 percent of a company now worth billions. Ten years later, his marriage over and reputation ruined, Nathan has changed his identity and lives a simple life on a small island off the coast of Massachusetts … But when his former boss (Hamm) shows up to renovate his summer mansion, Nathan vows to seek his revenge.
Hader [plays the] … henchman of an eccentric local quarry owner (Hall) who agrees to help David's character settle the old debt. Hudson is set as the Hamm's character's glamorous wife. Keaton will portray the erratic and eccentric operator of the quarry. McBride is taking on the best-buddy role. Mendes is set as an islander who takes an off-handed suggestion from David's character a bit too seriously, causing him no end of trouble. Smoove will play the ex-boyfriend of Mendes' character. Ryan is on board as the ex-girlfriend of David's character who has been hiding an explicit secret since before they dated.
Somewhere, the cast of "Oceans Thirteen" is collectively sh*tting their pants. Except for Clooney, who's organizing an official wine-off. Glass for glass.
