Diane Ladd And Luke Wilson Get Enlightened On HBO
Luke Wilson is set to take on his first regular TV job as he’s been cast to play opposite Laura Dern in HBO’s upcoming comedy pilot, Enlightened. It was also announced that Diane Ladd was also cast in the pilot.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, “The project stars Dern as Amy, a self-destructive woman who after a meltdown has a spiritual awakening and becomes determined to live an enlightened life, creating havoc at home and work.” Wilson is set to play Amy’s drug-addicted ex-husband.
Diane Ladd will be playing the role of Amy’s mother, which seems fitting as she’s Laura Dern’s real-life mother. According to the Reporter, Ladd and Dern have co-starred together in nine other TV and film projects. In Enlightened, Ladd’s character will take her daughter Amy into her home as a houseguest after her crisis.
