Robert Rodriguez Shorts Needs William H. Macy

Robert Rodriguez who for a while had been incredibly quiet especially for his output but that all changed this week with details of his new tv show and now just announced his cast for his upcoming film Shorts, and its a beauty. Rodriguez has lined up a terrific cast of comedy talents. So far the cast counts William H. Macy, John Cryer, James Spader and Leslie Mann.

Shorts is a family film, to be written and directed by Rodriguez, set in an identikit town where everybody works for the same company, Black Box, which is used for almost every function of the inhabitants' lives. Chaos follows when a boy is hit in the head with a rainbow-coloured rock that grants wishes.
