Rhys Ifans To Co-Star In Showtime Pilot ‘Trending Down’

EXCLUSIVE: Rhys Ifans (The Amazing Spider-Man, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows) is set to co-star opposite Philip Seymour Hoffman and Kathryn Hahn in Showtime‘s comedy pilot Trending Down. A blistering attack on our youth-obsessed culture, Trending Down centers on Thom Payne (Hoffman), a man facing his own obsolescence after his advertising agency is taken over. BAFTA winner Ifans, repped by UTA, Brillstein Entertainment and 42, will play Thom’s (Hoffman) boss, Jonathan. Trending Down is written and executive produced by Shalom Auslander. It was developed by Ken Kwapis, who will executive produce; John Cameron Mitchell is directing.

  • Check out Rhys Ifans in Danny Deckchair (2003). Sells you on his annoying character, then brings you right back to liking him. The film is underappreciated, IMO.
    I’ll let Zachary eat my hat too if this project doesn’t go to series.
