Academy Award winner Jim Rash (“Bros”) has signed on to star alongside Scarlett Johansson and Channing Tatum in Project Artemis — the high-profile Apple Original, to be directed by Greg Berlanti, reports Deadline.
While unconfirmed, the article says Rash will play Lance, a fashionable, chic commercial director. “Flamboyant and determined to create art, Lance is known for constantly going over budget on set, being incredibly opinionated and is perpetually un-hirable,” according to Deadline.
Rash is a writer, director, producer and actor who won an Oscar in 2012 for the screenplay to Alexander Payne’s “The Descendants.”
