Shirley MacLaine will play the mother of Arconia’s CEO. “She’s 88 now and as hot as they come,” Hoffman said. “The beauty for me was that prior to her arrival, Steve said, ‘I can’t believe I’m going to be doing things with Shirley MacLaine.’ Then he continued to see her when he was young. That really moved me.”
