EXCLUSIVE: I’m hearing that Tim Blake Nelson has been set to host the closing awards ceremony at the Sundance Film Festival on Saturday, January 29. Nelson will be on hand for the premiere of his latest film, Flypaper. He stars with Patrick Dempsey and Ashley Judd in the Rob Minkoff-directed film, which was produced by Dempsey. Scripted by The Hangover writers Scott Moore and Jon Lucas, the pic’s about two gangs that knock off the same bank at the same time. Nelson’s one of the bumbling robbers. The pic premieres Friday, January 28 at the Eccles Theatre, and is being shopped by UTA. Pic’s produced by Mark Damon and Peter Safran. Additionally, Nelson stars in the upcoming CBS drama series Chaos.
