Mandy Patinkin, Josh Gad Cast in Zach Braff's Wish I Was Here
Patinkin will be playing Braff’s father and Gad has been cast as his brother. The film—also written by Braff—is about a financially-strapped father and actor in his 30s who reluctantly attempts to home school his two young children, learning things about himself along the way.
Production is expected to begin in Los Angeles this August, with an eventual showing at the Sundance Film Festival next January and a theatrical release in September 2014.
Braff’s on-going Kickstarter campaign has currently netted $2.6 million from over 38,000 backers. It will continue until May 24 at 3 p.m. EST.
