Our Leading Lady.

2 likes

The character of Sarah (my wife) needs to be pretty, funny, believable as a mother of two children ages 5 and 12 and an actress who’s skilled at both comedy and drama.

I fell in love with Kate Hudson when I first saw her in Cameron Crowe’s “Almost Famous”. (She was nominated for an Oscar for her portrayal of Penny Lane.)

Years later, we have become good friends. There’s an added benefit in already being close with the actor playing opposite you; a familiarity that’s real and isn’t forced. As we shoot in August, I loved the idea of jumping into this movie-marriage with someone with whom I’ve already shared lots of laughs.

Backers, I am honored and excited to introduce our leading lady: Kate Hudson.

Allow me to introduce our starting lineup thus far:

  • Zach Braff (me) 
  • Kate Hudson 
  • Mandy Patinkin 
  • Josh Gad 
  • Anna Kendrick 
  • Jim Parsons 
  • Donald Faison 

P.S. We are about to be 40,000 people strong. Can't stop smiling. Love you all,

Zach

Joscha Viertauer's Dandelion Design! Congratulations Joscha!

Just to reiterate... if you're getting a t-shirt, you will eventually have a choice between this design and the one I'll be designing with Colin Fix. 

Some of you have asked, if you can get both/more T-Shirts. Yes, if you choose to, just add another $40 to your pledge amount for each additional tee ($50 if you're international). If you are going to a screening for two you will get two shirts as part of that reward :)

Also, yes, there will be a "ladies' cut" option. I never knew there was such a thing, but we're all learning here...

I hope you have a splendid Sunday. Hoping to announce my leading lady very soon. :)))))))
