It was only going to be a matter of timeâ€¦.
Richard Kind, best known his role as the spazwit Paul on â€œSpin Cityâ€, has been cast as one of the two leads in the new Coen Brosâ€™ movie.
Kind and Michael Stuhlbarg, a Tony-nominated actor with little experience in front of the cameras, will share the screen in â€œA Serious Manâ€, a black comedy pairing the duo as brothers.
Set in 1967, story centers on Larry Gopnik (Stuhlbarg), a Midwestern professor whose life begins to unravel when his wife sets out to leave him and his socially inept brother (Kind) won’t move out of the house.
Shooting is set to start at the beginning of next month in Minneapolis.
Though heâ€™s appeared in a bevy of movies â€“ including â€œConfessions of a Dangerous Mindâ€ and â€œFor Your Considerationâ€ â€“ thisâ€™d be the first major gig for 51-year-old Kind .
