Clear History should really consider the parenthetical title The HBO Movie With Larry David in an Insane Wig. That’s been the film’s main talking point — but a new minute-and-a-half trailer changes that, revealing more of the story line, a slew of famous faces and even a hairpiece-free David.
In the TV movie, the Curb Your Enthusiasm mastermind plays a marketing exec for a carmaker, and he’s not too impressed with his employer’s latest vehicle, the Howard electric car. He pulls a Jerry Maguire, telling off his boss (Jon Hamm) and selling his share in the company on his way out the door — only to have the detested car become a billion-dollar hit.
Joining David and Hamm for a ride in the Howard: Kate Hudson, Michael Keaton, Eva Mendes, Amy Ryan, J.B. Smoove, Bill Hader and Danny McBride, who tells a long-haired Larry, “You look like the guy who kidnapped Elizabeth Smart!”
