Alec Baldwin, Neil Patrick Harris & More Also Joining 'Downsizing'
Following news that Reese Witherspoon was going to reteam with her Election director Alexander Payne for the satire Downsizing, starring Matt Damon, a trio of new actors have been added to the film. THR reports that Alec Baldwin, Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Sudeikis will all have roles in the film that now finds itself getting produced and financed by Megan Ellison and her fantastic Annapurna Pictures banner. There's still no new details, but it's been said to follow a man, down on his luck, who decides he can have a much better life if he undergoes a process to shrink himself. It's probably Payne's oddest film yet.
This also sounds like it could be Payne's most comedic film since Election with names like Baldwin, Harris and Sudeikis involved now. Of course, all of Payne's films have had some quirky comedy, even amongst the drama in films like About Schmidt and The Descendants. Production is still a ways off though since it won't begin until Matt Damon is done shooting the next Jason Bourne film, but there's bound to be some more talent added to the mix soon. But this is already an impressive cast, and we're already excited to see what Payne brings to the screen with this one.
This is shaping up to be great. Baldwin is always a super solid pick.
