Patton Oswalt stands up for ‘Thomas’

Comedian joins Anton Yelchin in adaptation of Dean Koontz novel

Exclusive: Comedian Patton Oswalt is set to join Anton Yelchin in “Odd Thomas,” Stephen Sommers’ adaptation of Dean Koontz’s bestselling novel.

Oswalt will play Oswald “Ozzie” P. Boone, an eccentric artist who designs sculptures, including a steel pendant that the titular clairvoyant hero wears around his neck.

Variety previously revealed that Willem Dafoe and “Californication” star Addison Timlin were in negotiations to play the local sheriff and the protagonist’s girlfriend, respectively. “Scream 4” star Nico Tortorella is also in talks to join the cast.

Fusion Films partners John Baldecchi and Howard Kaplan are producing the supernatural thriller along with Sommers, who adapted the screenplay. “Odd Thomas” is scheduled to start production next month in Santa Fe, N.M.

Oswalt can currently be seen on Showtime’s “United States of Tara.” He recently wrapped Jason Reitman’s “Young Adult,” and will soon be seen in the comedy “A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas,” which Warner Bros. releases Nov. 4.

Oswalt is repped by CAA and Generate.
