A sharply cunning comedy starring Kevin Kline, Paul Dano, John C. Reilly, and Katie Holmes, The Extra Man employs a sophisticated wit to tell the tale of Louis Ives (Dano), an aspiring writer who idolizes F. Scott Fitzgerald and takes up residence with Henry (Kline), an offbeat playwright whose day job just happens to be as an “extra man”, a social escort for high society widows among Manhattan’s upper crust.  A surprising bond develops between them–think American Gigolo meets Good Will Hunting–as Henry attempts to show Louis the finer points of the “female companionship” trade.
