Gleeson is coming off a banner 2015 in which he starred in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “The Revenant” and “Ex Machina.” He just started filming David Wain‘s Netflix movie “A Futile & Stupid Gesture,” in which he plays one of the co-founders of National Lampoon.

Harris can currently be seen opposite James Franco in “The Adderall Diaries” and will soon be seen in Franco’s “In Dubious Battle.” He has also wrapped “Geostorm” with Gerard Butler and has Warren Beatty‘s untitled movie about Howard Hughes on the horizon.

Pfeiffer next stars opposite Robert De Niro in HBO’s Bernie Madoff movie “The Wizard of Lies.
