The ensemble cast includes Jon Hamm (TV’s Mad Men), Academy Award-winning actress Ellen Burstyn (Interstellar), twice-Oscar nominated Catherine Keener (Accidental Love), twice-Oscar nominated Bruce Dern (The Hateful Eight), Nick Offerman (The Founder), Amber Tamblyn (Django Unchained), John Ortiz (A Dog’s Purpose), James Le Gros (Certain Women), Patton Oswalt (TV’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Annalise Basso (Captain Fantastic), Larry Wilmore (Date and Switch) and Joanna Going (Love & Mercy).
