Kroll Show and The League actor Nick Kroll is set to play his first starring role in a movie. THR reports that he’s been cast in My Brother’s Keeper, an indie comedy-drama to be produced by the Duplass Brothers. The film, which is set to start shooting in January in New York, stars Kroll as a young, self-centered businessman destroys his career on the eve of his company’s launch. He then moves in with estranged, pregnant sister (Rose Byrne), her husband (Bobby Cannavale), and their three-year-old nephew (some toddler actor), and begins working as the kid’s nanny.
Kroll is producing the movie and also helped come up with the story, alongside Jeff Cox and Liz Flahive, who wrote the script. Oscar-nominated producer Ross Katz (Lost in Translation, In the Bedroom) is set to make his feature directorial debut on the project. While this is Nick Kroll’s first starring role in a film, he’s played supporting and bit parts in I Love You, Man, Get Him to the Greek, and more.
