Philip Baker Hall Joins MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS Cast
Philip Baker Hall has joined the cast of 20th Century Fox’s MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS, a modern day adaptation of the 1938 children’s book.
The story centers on Mr. Popper (Jim Carrey), a New York business man who inherits six penguins. They soon disrupt all aspects of his life, but eventually teach him about family and friendship.
Most recently seen co-starring in the comedy Fired Up!, Hall can soon be seen in All Good Things alongside Kirsten Dunst and Ryan Gosling; and Live With It, the new Seth Rogen-Joseph Gordon-Levitt comedy. In Mr. Popper’s Penguins, Hall will play Franklin, an investor that helps finance Mr. Popper’s different plans.
Andrew Stewart-Jones, Carla Gugino, and Ophelia Lovibond have also been cast in the film which will be directed by Mark Waters, and is already in production in New York.
