EXCLUSIVE: Child actor Vivien Lyra Blair (Obi-Wan Kenobi, Bird Box) has joined the upcoming comedy Goodrich, starring Mila Kunis and Michael Keaton.
We understand Blair recently wrapped shooting on the project, where she stars as Billie, the “smart, observant, straightforward and funny” 9 years old daughter of art dealer Andy Goodrich (Keaton). Billie is Andy’s daughter with his second, much younger wife.
The pic is currently shooting in Los Angeles, where the story is set. The plot, billed as “comedic and heart-warming,” follows Goodrich, a man whose life is upended when his younger second wife leaves him and enters a 90-day rehab program while also threatening divorce. Andy takes charge of their nine-year-old twins, thrusting him into the world of modern parenthood for which he is deeply unprepared. With his career falling by the wayside, Andy leans on his grown and pregnant daughter Grace (Kunis) for support and ultimately evolves into the father Grace never had. With all his relationships being put to the test, Andy learns the true meaning of having it all.
