Comedian and actor JB Smoove teams up with Larry David (again) for an HBO movie entitled Clear History. You may remember JB as Leon, Larry David’s ex-brother-in-law, from The Black family on HBO’s hit series, Curb Your Enthusiasm.
David’s film, which he co-wrote and stars in, along with Jonn Hamm, Eva Mendes, Bill Hader and Michael Keaton,centers around a company executive, who, after a peronsal and public humiliation due to a falling out with a co-exec (Hamm), retreats to a simple life with his family on an island.
However, ten years later, when Hamm arrives on the island to renovate his summer home, David uses the opportunity to finally get his revenge.
Superbad director Greg Mottola is in talks to helm the project, which originally was going to be made for Fox Seachlight, until HBO came in with a better offer and bigger budget for the film.
And as with Enthusiam, most of the film’s dialogue will be improvised with the actors following the basic premise of the storyline. If the chemisty between the actors of Clear History is anything like that of Curb Your Enthusiam; the film will be a hit!
JB Smoove also host Russell Simmons Presents Stand-Up at the El Rey Sundays at 11PM/10c on Comedy Central.[youtube id=”sMYrZ7WrwQQ” width=”600″ height=”350″]
