The film costars James Franco and Frida Pinto.Despite the misleading headline and hackneyed primate references, Lithgow will not be playing an ape. Instead, he has landed the roll of the protagonist's Alzheimer's stricken father, which is a lot like playing an ape, since both apes and Alzheimer's patients have been known to throw feces. You think I'm making a crass joke, but I'm serious. I saw it first hand with my uncle Bobo.
