Rebecca Hall has been cast as the lead in Richard Linklater‘s comedy Liars A-E. According to Empire Online, Hall will play a woman who takes a road trip with a friend (Kat Dennings) during the Obama inauguration to collect what is rightfully hers — items from her ex-boyfriends.
The plot includes a historical-twist which can always be fun, but if thats not enough to draw you in, Hall’s resume sure will. The actresses past projects include Starter for 10, which served as an impressive debut, and a lead role in Woody Allen‘s Vicky Cristina Barcelona, which earned her a Golden Globe nomination.
Also on Hall’s resume is the film adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray. The film has done overseas and was recently released in the UK on September 9th. Although Hall’s character is small in the book, she plays an important role in the story, because her actions influence her husband Lord Henry Wotton’s (Colin Firth) decisions. The U.S. release date has not, but hopefully we’ll get to see it sooner than later.
What do you think of Hall’s new role?
