I was just doing a little research on actor comebacks in the list for the previous post and I just found out that John Lithgow is making a major comeback to the big screen. He has a major role for the upcoming, “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”, movie, but wikipedia or IMDB didn’t say what character he is playing. After finding this article, John is playing James Franco’s father in the film. Since John is playing a guy who has Alzheimer’s, expect for some really GOOD acting chops by John that could be Oscar worthy for an supporting actor award. Now that I know that John is in this movie, I’m really looking forward to it now. I forgot he signed on to this movie.
