Watch: ‘Starring Austin Pendleton’ Trailer Shows an Actor Who’s a Legend Among His Peers

Watch: 'Starring Austin Pendleton' Trailer Shows an Actor Who's a Legend Among His Peers

If you (or your child) ever watched “Finding Nemo” more than five times in the span of a week, Austin Pendleton’s voicework is the reason you’ve probably shouted “Curse you, AquaScum!!” into the void without realizing it. As part of the cast of last year’s cinephile favorite “The Mend,” Pendleton delivered one of the year’s most memorable on-screen anecdotes. And if, say, you happen to think that Peter Bogdanovich’s 1972 classic “What’s Up, Doc?” is one of the best screwball comedies ever made, Pendleton’s Mr. Larrabee is a big reason why.

And now, to Pendleton’s list of cinematic accomplishments, you can add “documentary subject.”
