BIG NEWS! Finn joined the cast of another movie and it’s a comedy! As you can read below:

Along with Slate, the American Horror Story star joins a cast that includes John Turturro, Edie Falco, Jay Duplass and newcomer Abby Quinn.

Landline follows three women of the Jacobs family — teenager Ali (Quinn), older sister Dana (Slate) and mom (Falco) — as they navigate lots of sex, drugs and Japanese food in long-lost New York.

Holm is producing with Gigi Pritzker and Russell Levine for their respective production banners, OddLot Entertainment and Route One Entertainment. OddLot’s Rachel Shane is executive producing.

Wittrock recently appeared in Adam McKay’s Oscar-winning financial crisis film The Big Shortand is a mainstay on Ryan Murphy’s FX anthology series American Horror Story. He next will be seen in Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash follow-up La La Land, which stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling.

Wittrock is repped by ICM and Weissenbach.
