Jules Feiffer, you know, is 85 years old. But he’s young at heart and one of the most gifted writers ever. Now I can tell you there’s a whole cast for his new movie “Bernard and Huey,” to be directed by Dan Mirvish.
Jim Rash, who played Dean on “Community,” will be Bernard to David Koechner’s Huey. The rest of the cast includes Richard Kind, Nancy Travis, Mae Whitman, Bellamy Young and Sasha Alexander.
Producers are Dan Mirvish, Mike S. Ryan, Dana Altman, and Matthew Keene Smith.
Feiffer wrote “Bernard and Huey” for Showtime 30 years ago, but it was never produced. The story is based on characters from his wonderful comics in the Village Voice back when that newspaper mattered. Mirvish, by the way. is the co founder of the Slamdance Film Festival and director of many short films.
