Riley Cusick’s second feature film The Wild Man now has its cast set.
Veteran actors Larry Fessenden (Jakob’s Wife), Jenna Kanell (Terrifier), and Kelli Maroney (Fast Times at Ridgemont High) have joined the cast of the upcoming indie drama directed by Cusick (Autumn Road), who will also star from a script he wrote.
“With one week left until his mentally unwell father moves into a nursing home, Scott Treadwell (Riley Cusick) starts to unravel. His dysfunctional uncle, Walter Treadwell ( Fessenden), can’t seem to stay out of trouble,” says the official synopsis. “His house-arrested neighbor, Jackie Foster (Kanell), offers the opportunity for a life he can’t have. And his father, Jeff (Jeff Cusick), believes himself to be a dangerous wild animal. Unable to get his life together, Scott’s wellbeing starts to slip through the cracks as he reaches his breaking point.”
