Rebecca Hall, a Golden Globe nominee for 2008’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona, has been cast as the lead in Richard Linklater’s road dramedy Liars A-E, according to the Hollywood Reporter. She’ll play Bacall Loomis, a woman who takes a road trip during the Obama inauguration in an effort to reclaim personal items from ex-boyfriends. Kat Dennings (Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist) had previously been cast as Loomis’ pal. Producer Scott Rudin is also tied to the Miramax project.
