Walsh, Gaffigan aboard Staten Island Summer

Kate Walsh (“Private Practice”) and Jim Gaffigan (“Going the Distance”) have joined the cast of producer Lorne Michael’s coming-of-age film “Staten Island Summer”, says The Hollywood Reporter.

From director Rhys Thomas, “Summer” centers on ”two friends, Danny (Graham Phillips) and Frank (Zack Pearlman), who spend their summer after high school graduation as poolside lifeguards. The film chronicles the different paths the friends’ lives are about to take, with one entering an Ivy League college and the other unsure of his future.”

Walsh and Gaffigan play Danny’s parents.

Ashley Greene (“Twilight”, “CBGB”) is also onboard.
