Colin Hanks

Colin Hanks just got lucky with his latest gig. According to Variety, next week he will join actors Ari Graynor, Ann-Margret and Jeffrey Tambor on the set of Lucky in Iowa, where Gil Gates Jr. will direct the promising indie comedy. The script for this film must be pretty good if it got the legendary Ann-Magret to come out of semi-retirement.

Lucky is based on a serial killer who wins the lottery and attempts to pursue his lifelong crush. The question is — can Hanks, as sweet looking as he appears, be a believable serial killer? We’ve seen him act up a bit in The Great Buck Howard, but never anything too strenuous.

However, there is no doubt about the rest of this promising cast. Lately, Ari Graynor has landed some roles in potentially good films like Drew Barrymore‘s Whip It!, Youth In Revolt (starring Michael Cera), and we can’t forget her hilarious portrayal in Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist. On another note, as a huge Arrested Development fan, I’m always glad to see Jeffrey Tambor on the silver screen. His cameo in The Hangover just didn’t satisfy my appetite for Tambor-esque style comedy.

What do you think of the line up for the upcoming film, Lucky?
