Fisher Stevens Says Wes Anderson’s ‘Asteroid City’ Has “Wildest Cast” Since ‘Bridge on the River Kwai’

Aside from the fact that it'll be the next major work of whimsy directed by Wes Anderson, very little is known about Asteroid City. The film's title was (somewhat accidentally) revealed by Bill Murray at the London Film Festival in October in his introduction of a screening of The French Dispatch, where he described as having "the usual cast of characters." Now, The French Dispatch and Succession actor Fisher Stevens has offered another hype-filled morsel in an interview with Vulture, leaving no hyperbole at the door in describing the film's glitzy ensemble.

Two decades ago, Fisher Stevens thought he would be producing Noah Baumbach’s The Squid and the Whale with Wes Anderson — but it didn’t work out. But the process did kick off a friendship and roles for Stevens in films like Isle of Dogs and The Grand Budapest Hotel, both directed by Anderson. “For The Grand Budapest Hotel, he said, ‘Why don’t you come over and play a concierge?’” Fisher recalls in a recent conversation with Vulture. “I actually just got back about ten days ago from working with him again in Spain.

Whatever Happened to Fisher Stevens?

With everything he’s done over the course of an impressive career, one might think that Fisher Stevens would be known for a few other roles that might have made him stand out among the Hollywood elite. But the truth of it is that while he’s easy to recognize, trying to think of the most famous roles he’s taken might only yield a few memories here and there depending on what people have seen and what movie or TV show they recall seeing him in. There are a couple of obvious places that people might think of that he’s been, but apart from that, he’s been kind of under the radar for a good part of his career. Thankfully that doesn’t mean that he’s any less impressive for what he’s done since he’s been a director and a producer for a good deal of time and he’s taken on several projects that have been easy to recognize and even enjoy. For one reason or another though his time on screen hasn’t always been as easy to follow, though as mentioned there are a few moments when he was particularly noticeable since he stood out in a way that made it nearly impossible to discount his character. In fact, he plays a pretty good villain.
