Liberal Arts: Richard Jenkins Goes Back to School

by at . Comments

Oscar nominee Richard Jenkins (most recently seen in Cabin in the Woods) could have his choice of roles. But the actor saw something, not only in Josh Radnor’s script, but his potential as a director and co-star -- that made him jump at the opportunity to star in the How I Met Your Mother star’s second writing-directing effort, Liberal Arts. “He’s a really smart writer and a smart guy,” Jenkins said in our exclusive interview.

“I knew him a little bit. I knew how articulate he was and how he has so much to say. And the truth is I liked him, I just liked him. That goes a long way, I tell you.”
