Director Zach Braff.. it’s good to say that again after all these years.. Director Zach Braff has announced that his friend Kate Hudson will play the wife, Sara, in Braff’s directorial feature, WISH I WAS HERE, starring Braff as Aidan Bloom.
He’s also cast his SCRUBS friend Donald Faison and more..
The character of Sarah (my wife) needs to be pretty, funny, believable as a mother of two children ages 5 and 12 and an actress who’s skilled at both comedy and drama.
I fell in love with Kate Hudson when I first saw her in Cameron Crowe’s “Almost Famous”. (She was nominated for an Oscar for her portrayal of Penny Lane.)
Years later, we have become good friends. There’s an added benefit in already being close with the actor playing opposite you; a familiarity that’s real and isn’t forced. As we shoot in August, I loved the idea of jumping into this movie-marriage with someone with whom I’ve already shared lots of laughs.
Backers, I am honored and excited to introduce our leading lady: Kate Hudson.
Allow me to introduce our starting lineup thus far:
Zach Braff (me)
P.S. We are about to be 40,000 people strong. Can’t stop smiling. Love you all,
