Trailer: John C. Reilly and Steve Coogan in ‘Stan & Ollie’
“Stan & Ollie,” directed by Jon S. Baird, centers around the iconic Laurel & Hardy comedy duo as they attempt to reignite their careers by going on a grueling theater tour across post-war Britain. The drama co-stars Stephanie Hyam and Shirley Henderson, but everyone will be talking about Reilly’s extreme transformation as Hardy.
Laurel and Hardy were comedy partners who found fame during the silent film era and became one of the most popular duos in the genre for over two decades. “Stan & Ollie” is Baird’s first directorial effort since “Flith,” starring James McAvoy.
