Jenkins & More Join Radnor’s “Liberal Arts”

Richard Jenkins, John Magaro, Michael Weston and Elizabeth Reaser are all joining the indie love story “Liberal Arts” for Tom Sawyer Entertainment reports Variety.

“HappyThankYouMorePlease” star/director Josh Radnor plays Jesse Fisher, a 35-year-old admissions worker at a Gotham college who visits his liberal arts alma mater in Ohio where a 19-year-old student named Zibby (Elizabeth Olsen) tries to romance him.

Jenkins will play Jesse’s favorite college professor who introduces Jesse to Zibby’s family, Magaro will play a depressed college student who befriends Jesse, Weston will play one of his NYC friends, and Reaser will play a bookstore employee and potential love interest for Jesse.

Radnor wrote the script while Jesse Hara is producing. Shooting kicks off in June.
