Amazon's upcoming anthology series based on the popular New York Times column "Modern Love" has just revealed its sprawling cast, and the starry ensemble is absolutely brimming with A-listers, award winners, and familiar character actors.
Among the biggest names in the bunch are Anne Hathaway, Tina Fey, John Slattery (who also stars in Amazon's other high-profile, star-filled anthology series, "The Romanoffs"), and Dev Patel. And that's not all.
The rest of the impressive cast includes: Catherine Keener ("Get Out"), Andy Garcia ("Ocean’s Eleven"), Cristin Milioti ("Black Mirror"), Brandon Victor Dixon ("Power"), Olivia Cooke ("Ready Player One"), Andrew Scott ("Sherlock"), Julia Garner ("Ozark"), Shea Whigham ("Homecoming"), Gary Carr ("The Deuce," "Downton Abbey"), Sofia Boutella ("Kingsman: The Secret Service") and John Gallagher, Jr. ("The Newsroom").
Behind the camera, the talent is equally impressive. Emmy Rossum ("Shameless"), Sharon Horgan ("Catastrophe," "Divorce") and Tom Hall ("Sensation") are all set to direct installments of "Modern Love," and the series will also be written, directed, and produced by John Carney ("Once," "Begin Again," "Sing Street").
"It’s like I woke up in the actor candy store," Carney said in a statement. "We’ve managed to assemble a dream cast of my favorite actors. It’s a testament to the reach of the original column and of how, now more than ever, love is the only certainty."
"Modern Love" will feature eight standalone episodes, and "explore love in its multitude of forms – including sexual, romantic, familial, platonic, and self love," according to the show's official description. It's currently in production in New York City.
