Kevin Kline pleases the ladies. That's how he got Phoebe Cates.

Well in this trailer for THE EXTRA MAN, he's not entertaining gorgeous young women in little red bikinis. Actually he's providing companionship to much older, aristocratic women.

Paul Dano gets involved with the business after he takes the vacancy in Kline's penthouse. Not before he falls for his new co-worker played by Katie Holmes. Also check out a crazy bearded John C. Reilly.

I think this looks like a great film, especially based off of Kline's performance in this trailer alone. Check out the poster as well and judge for yourself. THE EXTRA MAN releases on July 30th.

"THE EXTRA MAN follows Louis Ives (Paul Dano), a lonely dreamer who fancies himself the hero of an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel. When a deeply embarrassing incident forces him to leave his job at an exclusive Princeton prep school, Louis heads to New York City to make a fresh start. He quickly finds a 9 to 5 job at an environmental magazine, where he encounters an entrancing, green-obsessed co-worker Mary (Katie Holmes).But, what really sparks Louis’ imagination is his new home life. He rents a room in the ramshackle apartment of Henry Harrison (Kevin Kline), a penniless, wildly eccentric and brilliant playwright. When Henry's not dancing alone to obscure music or singing operettas, he's performing ­ with great panache -- the duties of an extra man, a social escort for the wealthy widows of Manhattan high society. The two men develop a volatile mentorship, which leads to a series of urban adventures -- encountering everything from a leaping lion to a wildly jealous hirsute neighbor to drunken nonagenarians to a shady Swiss hunchback. Along his exploration into the heart of New York City, Henry and Louis have unexpected influences on each other and form a memorable bond that bridges their differences."

Maybe I'm jumping the gun but I get the vibe that a nomination in the least is what Klein will get for this role.
