Comedian Demetri Martin is in final talks for the starring role in Ang Lee’s next movie Taking Woodstock – a film based on Elliot Tiber’s memoir as the in-the-closet gay guy working at this parents motel who inadvertently sets the wheels in motion for the generation-defining concert of 1969.
I can’t say I know the guy but a lot of pages come up when I type his name in Google, so he must be someone famous. Maybe he hasn’t made the transition to the U.K.
Taking Woodstock will be Martin’s first leading role, though he will have a small role in two comedies next year The Rocker and The Post Grad Survival Guide.
