Pair of thesps join ‘Jakob’

Liev Schreiber and Nina Siemaszko have joined the cast of TriStar’s “Jakob the Liar,” now shooting in Poland.

Robin Williams stars in Peter Kassovitz’s World War II comedy-drama about a man who tries to keep up the spirits of his fellow Polish Jews by lying about having a radio and being able to tell the outside world about the plight of the Jews in the ghetto.

Marsha Williams and Steven Haft are producers of the film, tentatively set for a fall 1998 release. Also starring are Alan Arkin and Gregg Bello.

Schreiber has recently worked on “Phantoms,” “The Magic Hour,” “Sphere” and “Blouse Man.” Meanwhile, Siemaszko has been busy appearing in “Armistead Maupin’s More Tales of the City” and “Suicide Kings.”

Agents Steve Dontanville (at ICM, for Schreiber) and Leslie Siebert (at the Gersh Agency) and manager Gina Rugolo-Judd at More Medavoy Management brokered the deals for their clients with TriStar.
