Richard Lewis Joins Peter Bogdanovich’s New Comedy SQUIRRELS TO THE NUTS

RichardLewisComic and actor Richard Lewis has signed onto director Peter Bogdanovich’s new comedy Squirrels To The Nuts.

Lewis is set to play the father of the main character, a hooker turned Broadway star. Also in the cast are Cybil Shepherd as Lewis’s character’s wife/the mother of the female lead, Owen Wilson as the married director of her Broadway show who falls for her and Jennifer Aniston as his analyst.
