In the comedy, which just saw its first trailer released, David portrays a heavily bearded marketing executive at a carmaker.

An argument with his boss leaves him unemployes, so he sells his shares in the company, just before its worth soars into the billions. A decade later, with a new identity and minus numerous hair follicles, he gets the chance to get even.

David co-wrote the film, which also stars Bill Hader, Curb and Seinfeld veteran Philip Baker Hall, Jon Hamm, Kate Hudson, Michael Keaton, Danny McBride, Amy Ryan and David’s Curb foil J.B. Smoove.

Clear History is set to premiere on HBO on August 10.

Mendes Appearing in PBS’ “Half the Sky” Women’s Issues Series

Eva Mendes is hoping her recent visit to Sierra Leone will help shine a spotlight on the serious issues affecting girls and women across the globe.

The 38-year-old Cuban-American actress’ trip to the West African nation is all part of a special PBS series based on the best-selling book by the husband-wife team of Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide.

The new series introduces Mendes and other celebrities, including America Ferrera, Diane Lane, Meg Ryan, Gabrielle Union and Olivia Wilde to women and girls living under harsh circumstances, ranging from maternal death to prostitution.

Mendes, who will be starring in HBO’s Clear History with Larry David, kicks off the four-hour series – airing October 1 and 2 at 9:00 pm ET on PBS – with her visit to Sierra Leone, where she meets with activist Amie Kandeh, a survivor of gender-based violence working with the International Rescue Committee to help other survivors toward safe, productive futures.

“I knew I was in for a life-changing experience,” Mendes says of participating in the project. “This experience has profoundly affected me. I was so shocked and saddened to learn the extent of gender-based violence taking place in Sierra Leone every day and that trip has made me want to be a part of the solution.”

Mendes to Star in Larry David’s HBO Original “Clear History”

It looks like Eva Mendes and comedian Larry David will soon have a clear history together…

The 38-year-old Cuban American actress has joined the all-star cast of HBO‘s newly titled Clear History, an original movie co-written and top-lined by David and co-starring Kate Hudson, Jon Hamm and Danny McBride.

Directed by Greg Mottola, the movie centers on Nathan Flomm (David), a former marketing executive at a start-up electric car company who, after losing a fortune due to a petty argument with his boss, is publicly humiliated for walking away from his 10 percent of a company now worth billions. Ten years later, his marriage over and reputation ruined, Nathan has changed his identity and lives a simple life on a small island off the coast of Massachusetts under the new name of Rolly DaVore. But when his former boss (Hamm) shows up to renovate his summer mansion, Nathan vows to seek his revenge and drive his nemesis off the island.

Mendes, who was recently named on of the most dangerous celebrities on the web, is set to portray an islander who takes an off-handed suggestion from David’s character a bit too seriously, causing him no end of trouble.

Clear History will start shooting in Massachusetts in the fall.

No word yet on an expected premiere date.
