Just when I was about to file a missing person’s report on Brendan Fraser, this news comes to my attention; Variety reports that Fraser and Sienna Miller have joined the cast of A Case of You which stars Justin Long and Evan Rachel Wood. Directed by Kat Coiro (L!fe Happens), A Case of You is the story of a young writer who embellishes his online profile in order to impress a woman he has a crush on, but finds himself having to live up to the lofty expectations he put forth when he meets his dream woman in person. Fraser and Miller join a cast that includes Justin Long, Evan Rachel Wood, Keir O’Donnell, Busy Phillips, and best of all, Peter Dinklage.
Fraser, who last starred in 2011′s Whole Lotta Sole (I don’t know how I missed that one…), is gearing up for a busy couple of years. If his IMDb profile is accurate, he’s got three movies that are currently in post-production and two that are in pre-production (including William Tell 3D, which is supposed to start shooting this spring). Say what you want about Furry Vengeance, but I still love the guy and am ready to see him show up everywhere in 2012 and 2013. Encino Man buys that kind of loyalty.
And while A Case of You does sound a little generic, it’s a premise that is full of comedic potential if told right and Coiro and crew have definitely assembled the right cast to make it work. Fraser aside, Long is hilarious with the right material and there aren’t enough words in the English language to fully articulate how much I love Peter Dinklage’s work as an actor. A Case of You has the trappings of a dumb romantic comedy, but with a good cast it makes me have just enough hope to keep it on my radar.
A Case of You is currently filming in New York.
