Kate Hudson Joins the Cast of Zach Braff’s Wish I Were Here

We already told you that Zach Braff had cast Mandy Patinkin to play his father in his crowd-sourced film Wish I Was Here. Well, over the last week, the cast has filled out a bit. Josh Gad will play Braff’s brother. Anna Kendrick will play a cosplay aficionado whom Gad crushes on. As was alluded to in the pitch video, Jim Parsons and Donald Faison will be in it as well. And today it was announced that Kate Hudson will co-star as the wife of Braff’s character. Congrats, 40,000 backers, you're now famous people's bosses.
