‘Prairie’ adds companion

Tommy Lee Jones is joining the cast of director Robert Altman’s in-production bigscreen spinoff of Garrison Keillor’s U.S. radio show “A Prairie Home Companion.” Cast on the untitled comedy includes Meryl Streep, Lindsay Lohan, Woody Harrelson, Kevin Kline, Virginia Madsen, John C. Reilly and Maya Rudolph. The movie, penned by Keillor, has already begun lensing in St. Paul, Minn. Based on the fictionalized premise that Keillor’s multi-award-winning show – carried on 500 radio stations domestically – is being shut down after 30 years, the movie centers on an ensemble of performers, musicians and back-stage crew all prepping for a final live broadcast. Jones will take on the role of a shadowy character dispatched to St. Paul by the Texas conglom that has bought the show and plans to end its run.
