Virginia Madsen joins cast of indie film “Jake Squared”


•• Virginia Madsen and Elias Koteas have signed on to Jake Squared. Koteas will play the title character, a filmmaker whose self-examination movie spins out of control. The Oscar nominated Madsen plays Beth, Jake’s confidant. The film is written and directed by Howard Goldberg, a Sundance Institute Fellowship recipient. Koteas, Goldberg and David K. Wilson are producing the indie. Shelley H. Surpin and Howard Himelstein are executive producing.

Elias Koteas and Virginia Madsen star in a surreal comedy about a filmmaker who decides to make a movie to help figure out out how he’s managed to screw up every relationship he’s ever had. But, the filming spirals out of his control and he has what’s either a mystical experience, a total nervous breakdown, or both, as his past selves and past loves literally and hysterically catch up with him.
