The veteran comic actor and "Wish I Was Here" star join Sean Garrity's road trip movie

Veteran comic actor Kevin Pollak and teen star Joey King are set to star in the Canadian indie film Borealis by director Sean Garrity.

King plays the estranged pot-smoking teenage daughter of an unemployed gambler (Jonas Chernick) who takes her on a road trip where a volatile bookie, played by Pollak, pursues them. King and Pollak join a previously announced cast that includes Jake Epstein, Greg Bryk and Cle Bennett.

King recently had a starring role in Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here and was part of the cast of the first season of FX's Fargo TV series. Pollak co-stars on the comedy Mom and has movie credits like A Few Good Men and The Usual Suspects.

Garrity’s comedic-drama, based on a screenplay by Chernick, will shoot in Winnipeg, Manitoba and is produced by Buffalo Gal Pictures.
