Any current list of nominess for “Funniest Man Alive” has to include Ricky Gervais. The British comedian has yet to misfire and his upcoming comedy, “The Invention of Lying,” looks like another gem.
Joining Gervais — who stars, co-writes and co-directs — are Jennifer Garner, Tina Fey, Rob Lowe and Jonah Hill. But you can see that it the poster. Not shown in the poster are his other top co-stars, including Patrick Stewart, Jason Bateman and Christopher Guest.
Matthew Robinson, who is the movie’s co-writer and director, has a blog about the movie available at www.lecturefilms.com.
The poster itself it nothing special, but I’m up for whatever Gervais is doing these days, and the star-studded supporting cast is a great bonus. And that, my friends, is no lie.
“The Invention of Lying” is due in theaters Oct. 2.
