Nantucket Film Fest Program to Feature Bradley Whitford, Anthony Edwards

The Nantucket Film Festival has announced the lineup for some of the fest’s popular Signature Programs, including the annual All-Star Comedy Roundtable, presented by Ben Stiller, and the return of the live Staged Reading.

Donick Cary’s TV pilot “Strange Calls” will be this year’s staged reading, and “Parks and Recreation” showrunner Cary will be joined by Fred Willard, Anthony Edwards and Tom Cavanaugh. Michael Ian Black, meanwhile, will return to host the All-Star Comedy Roundtable.

Bradley Whitford will fill in for Emily Mortimer as the presenter of this year’s screenwriter’s tribute, which will be awarded to scribe Aaron Sorkin. Whitford worked with Sorkin as a cast member of both “The West Wing” and “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.”

The fest runs June 25-30 and features a slate of more than 100 titles.
