Ewan McGregor, the actor who played a crazy private detective in Eye of the Beholder and Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequels, has been cast in HBO’s upcoming adaptation of Jonathan Franzen‘s The Corrections.
Here’s more from The Hollywood Reporter: “McGregor will play Chip, the middle child of an elderly Midwestern couple ([Chris Cooper], [Dianne Wiest]) who reunite the family for one last Christmas.”
Who else would you cast for this grim family drama? As we noted earlier this year, Noah Baumbach and producer Scott Rudin were involved.
