Serious guys for Coens

kFor their last few movies, the Coen Brothers have rounded up some heavyweight talent - George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Tom Hanks, Tommy Lee Jones. After NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, they can pretty much get whoever they want.

So for their next movie, they're going with another familiar face... just not quite as A-list. They've brought in TV fixture, voice actor and Clooney chum Richard Kind ("SPIN CITY", "MAD ABOUT YOU") to star in their comedy A SERIOUS MAN. He'll be joined by Michael Stuhlbarg, a Tony-nominated actor with only a bit of screen and TV experience.

Set in 1967, SERIOUS centers on Larry Gopnik (Stuhlbarg), a Midwestern professor whose life begins to unravel when his wife sets out to leave him and his socially inept brother (Kind) won't move out of the house. It's conceivable a few other Coen regulars will show up as well.

Extra Tidbit: Kind has loaned his voice to Pixar twice: for CARS and A BUG'S LIFE.

Richard Kind is just the right fit for a Coen movie. So yeah, with that in mind, I'm totally looking forward to this.

Awesome

He's funnier than Charlie Sheen and Michael J. Fox combined. Did anyone else love him in The Grand?

I'm glad to see Kind getting some spotlight, he deserves it. I saw him in The Producers on Broadway; he had just taken over Nathan Lane's role and I thought he was way better than Lane himself.

Maybe now when I to people, "I like Richard Kind" They won't respond, "Who?"

Kind is pretty good on scrubs, and I think he'll be great in a Coen movie. They know what their doing.

very cool

One of the best things about the Coens is that they let these character actors really shine. I have a feeling this risk will pay off for them.

Kind's a decent enough actor (especially on Scrubs) and its good to see him get a leading role. I remember as a kid seeing him in Even Stevens and then realizing "holy crap, this guy's everywhere!" As for the film, I've seen all but two of the Cohens films so I'm sure I'll see this one too. I'm betting they get some more recognizable faces to round out the cast though.
