{TB EXCLUSIVE} Catherine Keener Joins Peter Dinklage For “My Dinner With Hervé” Biopic



is set to star opposite Peter Dinklage in MY DINNER WITH HERVÉ. The project, which will be helmed by Hitchcock biopic director Sacha Gervasi, focuses on an interview in 1993 with famous dwarf actor Hervé Villechaize, who shortly after committed suicide. Kenner will portray Kathy Self, Hervé’s longtime girlfriend, who met the actor on the set of Fantasy Island. Dinklage has been attached to star as Hervé since the project’s announcement in 2011. Ryan Gosling and James McAvoy were both previously attached to star as the fictional reporter Danny Tate. Most recently Dominic Cooper was attached to star as Tate, but I’m hearing that he’s now no longer involved. Gervasi also wrote the film’s screenplay, with Tate’s interview being based upon the real interview he had with Herve.

Keener recently starred in Captain Phillips, the Tom Hanks-led Somali pirate drama. She also starred in The Weinstein Company’s romantic drama Begin Again and the IFC Films drama War Story. She’ll next star opposite Anton Yelchin in The Greens Are Gone, opposite Bruce Greenwood in The Elephant Song, and opposite Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Biel in Accidental Love.

Keener is repped by Gersh.
