The director statement:
Anvari calls himself “blessed and honored” that Macdonald, MacKay, and Ascott are part of his cast. The majority of whom he had previously admired.
“With Hugh he was my top choice because I always wanted to cast someone that people haven’t seen… not going straight to an actor that has done such dark roles before but going for someone who’s more unexpected. Of course, Hugh Bonneville is known from Paddington and Downton and these comedies, so I was really stubborn about getting Hugh and I’m so glad that he responded to it.”
