Lisa Kudrow and Liam Aiken join the cast of Will

February 1st, 2008 by Paul Martin

Lisa Kudrow and Liam Aiken have come aboard to star in “Will,” the musical coming-of-age dramedy that Walden Media and Summit Entertainment will co-finance.

David Bowie also is in talks to join the cast, which includes Vanessa Hudgens, Aly Michalka and Scott Porter.

Written by Todd Graff and Josh Cagan, the script centers on a high school outcast and a popular girl who form an unlikely bond through their shared love of music. They assemble a like-minded crew of misfits and form a rock group to perform in a battle of the bands competition at their school.

Aiken is playing the title character, while Kudrow will play his mother.
