Kurt Fuller has landed a role in the indie feature Phil opposite Greg Kinnear, who also is directing. The film centers on a suicidal dentist (Kinnear) who is stunned when his seemingly perfect patient commits suicide. Eager to make sense of his death, Phil disguises himself and goes undercover to the deceased patient’s home, winning the confidence of the grieving widow and her family in the process. But it’s not long before Phil realizes he’s in too deep. Fuller will play Jerome, a distinguished dean of the local university where Phil’s patient worked. Stylish, casual, warm and rather inquisitive, he soon proves a formidable threat to unmasking Phil’s disguise. Veteran actor Fuller’s recent credits include Midnight In Paris, a series regular on Better With You and recurring roles on The Good Wife and Psych. He is repped by APA and Rick Ax Management.
