The link takes me to Mercy Street, which doesn't show him joining the cast. What gives?

Okay. Second attempt took me to Death of Stalin. Definitely interesting.

I've been vacationing and babysitting so I missed this news. I am thrilled. I love Armando Iannucci, who created not only Veep, but my favourite show of all time, The Thick of It. I am sooo looking forward to seeing Jason in a comedy. I'm going to search for my long-lost smilies collection.........

found it:

Oh God, Jeffrey Tambor, too?

It's got an American distributor:

IFC Films has bought North American rights to “The Death of Stalin” out of the Berlin Film Festival’s European Film Market

Jason's character isn't given a name on imdb. (He's got no moustache in the pic, so he can't be Stalin himself.)

I don't know the graphic novel at all; it's entirely possible that Stalin doesn't appear.

Still really looking forward to this.

I read somewhere else that Jason plays General Zhukov. Can't remember where I read it, but I'm pretty sure that's his character.
