Billy Crudup also stars in the indie.

Josh Lucas has joined the cast of Youth in Oregon, the dark comedy from actor-turned-director Joel David Moore.

Frank Langella and Billy Crudup are starring in the indie, which tells of a husband (Crudup) on a cross-country trip to Oregon with his cantankerous father-in-law (Langella), a man who has given up on life. He must convince his father-in-law not to commit euthanasia when they arrive in the state.

Lucas will play Langella’s estranged gay son.

Christina Applegate is already cast in the movie that shoots this month in New York.

Andrew Eisen wrote the script to the feature, which is being produced by Stefan Nowicki, Morgan White and Joey Carey of Sundial Pictures

Lucas will shoot Youth in tandem with the second season of NBC’s Mysteries of Laura. The actor, who is repped by WME and Hirsch Wallerstein, also starred in a gun safety PSA released earlier in June for advocacy group Evolve.
