Kate Hudson has reportedly joined the cast of Zach Braff’s film “Wish I Was Here,” for which Braff is raising funds via Kickstarter.
Hudson will play Braff’s wife in the movie, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Braff will direct the film as he did with “Garden State,” and has written the film’s script with his brother Adam Braff.
Braff was impressed with Hudson’s Oscar-nominated role in the 2000 film “Almost Famous,” according to The Wrap, and the two are now “good friends,” the actor said.
The movie will follow a man named Aidan Bloom, played by Braff, a father and husband and trying to find work as an actor and searching for meaning in his life. After other educational options fall through, he begins to homeschool his children.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the film will also star “Homeland” actor Mandy Patinkin, “Book of Mormon” actor Josh Gad, and Jim Parsons of "The Big Bang Theory," who also appeared in Braff’s 2004 film “Garden State.”
