Meet the Star-Studded Cast of Where'd You Go, Bernadette
It seems like it has been an eternity since Cate Blanchett signed on for the lead role in the movie adaptation of Where'd You Go, Bernadette. (OK, it has been since November 2015.) Now, the rest of the characters are being cast, slowly but surely. Richard Linklater is directing the film, based on Maria Semple's 2012 bestseller, and we couldn't be happier about the choices so far. Now that it has gotten a Mother's Day 2018 release date, check out everyone who has been cast so far.
The two-time Oscar winner is starring as Bernadette, the architect-turned-recluse and missing mother of Bee Branch.
Fresh off of his roles in Gypsy and Alien: Covenant, Billy Crudup has joined Where'd You Go, Bernadette? as Bernadette's husband, Elgie.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wiig will play Audrey, "an uptight mom who likes to make life difficult for Bernadette."
Variety confirmed that the Pretty Little Liars star is on board as Becky, the first person Bernadette meets on her adventure to Antarctica.
Judy Greer has signed on to Where'd You Go, Bernadette? as Dr. Kurtz, a therapist and the director of Madrona Hills, a treatment facility for mental illness. Elgie hires her to help him hold an intervention for Bernadette.
Laurence Fishburne joined the cast, but the details of his role are still under wraps.
