The actor is taking on a new role in the upcoming movie, Downtown Owl. We’re going to overlook that title, because quite frankly, owls are scary.
We said what we said.
The movie is, “Based on Chuck Klosterman’s New York Times bestselling novel of the same name. It’s set somewhere in rural North Dakota in 1983, in the fictional town called Owl. There, you won’t find cable or pop culture, but you will find a downtown with a first-rate Chevrolet dealership, three bars and a new high school English teacher whose presence upends the lives of locals, just in time for a white-out blizzard for the ages.”
The movie will be the directorial debut of Hamish Linklater. Henry Golding is set to star alongside Ed Harris, Vanessa Hudgens, Finn Wittrock, Jack Dylan Grazer, August Blanco Rosenstein and Lily Rabe.
Now, would we read the book? Probably not. But we’re intrigued. Are you?
