Today in excellent-but-bizarre-movie-announcements, Kit Harington and Andy Samberg will play tennis rivals involved in a seemingly endless seven day match in a new HBO mockumentary.
Samberg is pegged as the "bad boy" in this battle, while Harington plays "an Andy Murray-type prodigy and certified truck driver." The Hollywood Reporter notes that the rest of the cast on this untitled project is also superb: Will Forte, Fred Armisen, Lena Dunham, HOWIE MANDEL, Michael Sheen, woman with the best name ever June Squibb, beautiful goddess Mary Steenburgen, that girl from that new show Selfie and Soledad O'Brien, who will be playing herself.
The project is being co-written by a Girls writer/executive producer and Samberg himself. Let this mashup of the Isner/Mahut game and the movie Wimbledon begin!
