‘Prairie’ Gets One More ‘Companion’


Variety is reporting that Tommy Lee Jones is joining the cast of Robert Altman‘s A Prairie Home Companion, the feature film adaptation of Garrison Keillor’s U.S. radio show.

The film is already in production and currently stars Meryl Streep, Lindsay Lohan, Woody Harrelson, Kevin Kline, Virginia Madsen, John C. Reilly and Maya Rudolph.

The film was penned by Keillor and is based on the fictionalized premise that Keillor’s multi-award-winning show — carried on 500 radio stations domestically — is being shut down after 30 years, pic centers on an ensemble of performers, musicians and back-stage crew all prepping for a final live broadcast.

Jones will be taking on the role of a shadowy character dispatched to St. Paul by the Texas conglomeration that has bought the show and plans to end its run.
