Recently, Paramount+ has been delivering the best films to keep its fans glued to their seats. The streaming platform’s most recent piece, Jerry & Marge Go Large, is a clear piece of evidence.
The film is grounded on Jason Fagone’s The Huffington Post piece of the same title, which chronicled the true-life tale of lottery hackers Gerald and Marjorie Selbee.
Jerry & Marge Go Large will center on the incidences leading to the Massachusetts and Michigan Lotteries’ hacking by the Selbees’. Using his knowledge of puzzles and Mathematics, Jerry decodes the tricks behind the lottery, uses them to win, and shares the money across his society.
Everything comes with consequences, and so do Jerry and Marge’s tricks. However, the pair isn’t the only one yearning for the money. College students also try to blackmail Jerry and Marge if they don’t stop messing with the lottery-winning results.
The film stars Bryan Cranston of Breaking Bad and The One and Only Ivan, portraying Jerry Selbee. Annette Bening of American Beauty, Being Julia, and The Kids Are All Right impersonates Marge Selbee.
Other characters include Cheech Manohar playing Eric, Devyn McDowell representing Liz, Anna Harada depicting Shirley, Anna Camp enacting Dawn, Uly Schlesinger acting Tyler, and Jake McDorman impersonating Ben Selbee. Larry Wilmore and Rainn Wilson are also present in the film.
Jerry & Marge Go Large premieres this Friday, June 17th, via Paramount+ after launching at the Tribeca on Wednesday, June 15th. The film will not air in theaters. Paramount+ has unveiled a trailer for more description as we wait.
