(FROM HOLLYWOOD REPORTER) ? John Goodman, Ed Asner, and Jane Alexander have joined Paul Dano and Zooey Deschanel in the cast of the indie offbeat romantic comedy Gigantic. Matt Aselton is making his feature directorial debut on the movie, about a mattress salesman (Dano) and a woman (Deschanel) he meets at his store. Asner will play Dano’s pot-smoking, gangsta rap-loving father, and Alexander plays his mother. Goodman plays Deschanel’s brilliant but domineering father. Machine Made Media is financing the project, and production is scheduled to start today (March 3). (Hollywood Reporter)
