In an article I just read, it is noted that Joan Cusack will play a nurse who comes to board at the Kittredge family home in the upcoming movie – Kit Kittredge, An American Girl Mystery. So is this Mrs. Howard? I would assume so, but please correct me if I am misinterpreting something.

So here is what we know (according to IMDB and other news sources):

  • Kit will be played by Abigail Breslin
  • Julia Ormond will play Kit’s Mother
  • Chris O’Donnell will play Kit’s Father
  • Willow Smith, the daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith has also been cast (source)
  • other cast members include Stanley Tucci, Jane Krakowski, Glenne Headly and Max Theiriot

Production is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, so I’m sure we will start getting even more details on the cast and what parts they will play.
