Actor Josh Radnor has made a career out of playing the nice, sensitive, and likable guy by starring as Ted Mosby in the series How I Met Your Mother since 2005. He also had done the nice-guy bit on the big screen by writing, directing, and starring in 2010's Happythankyoumoreplease, which is as optimistic and heartwarming as its title suggests. He has taken on acting, writing and directing duties again with Liberal Arts. While his character in the flick is again sensitive and well-meaning, he apparently ends up dating an undergrad. No matter how sensitive a guy is, it's always a little creepers when a man in his mid-thirties gets involved with a 19-year-old girl, even if that girl is Elizabeth Olsen. watch the trailer >> Posted 08.12.12 by Mandy
Josh Radnor's comedy/drama Happythankyoumoreplease made a good impression at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Audience Award and was soon picked up for distribution. Weeks before the movie reached its August release date, the rights were sold to another distributor, leaving the release date in doubt. A new trailer has finally been released for the movie, which is finally going to enter theaters this March.
Written, directed, and starring Radnor (CBS' How I Met Your Mother), Happythankyoumoreplease tells the story of a foster child who alters the life of a struggling novelist and his friends. read the synopsis and watch the trailer >> Posted 01.13.11 by Ryan
Actress Malin Akerman's career has been on an upward trajectory since her breakout role on the short-lived Lisa Kudrow series The Comeback. Since then, Akerman has gone psycho in The Heartbreak Kid with Ben Stiller, played a superhero in Zack Snyder's Watchmen, and is currently starring in one of this year's biggest comedy hits, Couples Retreat.
In the October issue of 944 magazine, Akerman talked about some of her upcoming projects and discussed the price of fame. For her next film, she's taking a break from comedy for a dramatic role.
Yes, The Bang Bang Club — it's based on a true story of two photojournalists' journey through the end of Apartheid — I play the photo editor. The story's incredible and it's really raw. We used a lot of locals and shot in all the same places where things happened.
Akerman will return to comedy in writer-director Josh Radnor's HappyThankYouMorePlease, an ensemble piece that Malin calls her "love."
I play a woman with alopecia universalis. I shaved off my eyebrows for the part and wore a bald cap. It's about all of our journeys to find love — and obviously I have added difficulties as a bald woman. It's [about] her trying to stay positive.
The more projects Akerman does, the more famous she becomes, a situation she says is "manageable" for the time being.
I couldn't imagine being Robert Pattinson right now. That would scare the sh-- out of me. I'd rather be able to walk out the door have a life. Posted 10.25.09 by BrentJS
