Brett Haley’s (I’ll See You in My Dreams) latest film pairs him once again with Sam Elliott. “The Hero” follows Elliott’s Lee Hayden, an actor whose glory days are behind him. A pothead and an occasional voice-over actor, he decides to try to make amends with his family following a cancer diagnosis.
The film also stars Laura Prepon, Krysten Ritter, Nick Offerman, and Elliott’s real-life wife Katharine Ross.
