Goodwin, Hoult Join Single Man

Small screen stars Ginnifer Goodwin (“Big Love”) and Nicholas Hoult (“Skins”) have joined the cast of Tom Ford’s directorial debut “A Single Man” says The Hollywood Reporter.

An adaptation of Christopher Isherwood’s 1964 novel, Goodwin will play Mrs. Strunk, a suburban mom who doesn’t share her husband’s dislike of their neighbor, a gay professor (Colin Firth).

Hoult will play Kenny, a sexually ambiguous grad student who shows an unusual interest in the professor. The story follows a day in the life of the professor after his long-term partner (Matthew Goode) dies in a car crash. Julianne Moore also stars.

Ford adapted the screenplay with David Scearce. Principal photography begins this week in Los Angeles.
