Because many of you miss the News section...you know who you are :eyebrow:...am bumping this thread up with the additional cast choices and director announced today by Hulu.

Chris Cooper (Al Templeton) - The irascible owner of Al’s diner, a mentor/friend to Jake. His appeal to save Kennedy sends Jake on his incredible mission. (IMDB)

Sarah Gadon (Sadie Dunhill) - Sadie is the luminous, sharp librarian in 1960s Jodie, Texas. She falls in love with Jake, unaware of his double life. (IMDB)

Cherry Jones (Marguerite Oswald) - Lee Harvey Oswald’s mother. She is as needy and difficult as her infamous son. (IMDB)

Daniel Webber (Lee Harvey Oswald) - One of the most discussed figures in American history and an enigma even to himself. (IMDB)

George MacKay (Bill Turcotte) - A young, guileless bartender from 1960s Kentucky, Bill becomes Jake’s ally. (IMDB)

Lucy Fry (Marina Oswald) - Lee Harvey Oswald’s Russian wife. She is a knockout and challenged to make her way in a foreign country with her unpredictable husband. (IMDB)

Leon Rippy (Harry Dunning) - A kind, soft-spoken and damaged janitor at Jake’s school in 2015; his traumatic early life in the 1960’s has a surprising impact on Jake. (IMDB)

Academy Award winner Kevin Macdonald (IMDB) has also signed on to direct and executive produce the first two hours of the nine-hour event series.

I saw Al as a sort of Jerry Orbach sort, but Chris Cooper is definitely a good actor and well able to inhabit Al :) Sarah Gadon will make a lovely Sadie (though I think she's really short, isn't she?--whatever. Wonders can be done with camera angles :) )

Honestly don't know if he will. Can only say we haven't set anything up at the moment but that could change depending on his schedule and willingness to do one if asked. :smile2:
If you tell him he can have some time off (lol) and his schedule suddenly frees up, he can do a cameo AND come visit me on the way back home.
(Yes, I did so take Geography at high school.)
