EXCLUSIVE: Limitless star Jake McDorman has joined the cast of Ideal Home, the feature dramedy from Remstar Studios that stars Paul Rudd and Steve Coogan. The latter two play Paul and Erasmus, a bickering couple with an extravagant life. But when the grandson Erasmus never knew he had shows up at their high-class dinner party with nowhere else to go, the pair reluctantly decide to take him in.
McDorman is taking on the role of Beau, a drifter father who loses custody of his son to his estranged dad Erasmus and partner Paul. Andrew Fleming is directing and wrote the screenplay. Shooting is currently under way in New Mexico.
McDorman’s other credits include Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper and Showtime’s Shameless. He’s repped by UTA.
Fortitude International has offshore sales; UTA Independent Film Group and WME are repping U.S. rights. This is the first project co-financed by Canadian distributor Remstar’s sister company Remstar Studios alongside the National Bank of Canada.
