'Clear History' trailer: Larry David wigs out

Posted on

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!”
