Two great actors (or rather, an actor and an actress) have joined Simon Pegg in his upcoming film Hector and the Search For Happiness – Rosamund Pike and Christopher Plummer have both taken roles in this dramedy, directed by Peter Chelsom.
Pike will play the role of Clara, Hector’s long-term girlfriend (who I can imagine probably won’t be too happy about her boyfriend’s quest) and Plummer is attached as Professor Coreman, a leading guru for Happiness Studies at UCLA.
Based on the novel by Francois Lelord, the film stars Pegg as the titular Hector, a character described in a recent press release as “an eccentric yet irresistible London psychiatrist in crisis.” He is unable to help any of his patients because he doesn’t seem to understand happiness himself, so he ventures out into the world to find it.
