Michael Lembeck directs a cast that features Ashley Judd, Crystal, Andrews, Stephen Merchant and Ryan Sheckler. Filming will begin next week in Vancouver.

Crystal made his Broadway debut in 2004 in the solo show 700 Sundays, which earned the actor the Tony, Outer Critics Circle and Drama Desk awards. His film and television appearances are numerous and have resulted in six Emmy Awards, six American Comedy Awards and seven Cable Ace Awards.
