The film adaptation of Neil LaBute’s slick play Some Girls is poised to make its big debut at this year’s SXSW festival in March. Adam Brody stars in the film about a writer who tracks down his former girlfriends in order to make amends for his past douchebaggery. In one of the first clips from the film, Brody’s character returns to his old bedroom and faces some harsh judgment from Emily Watson’s character Lindsay, a married woman with whom he had an affair. Kristen Bell, Zoe Kazan and Jennifer Morrison also star. Watch the clip below and hope Some Girls gets a theatrical release soon!
“The O.C.” star Adam Brody is making his triumphant return to live-action television with a guest starring appearance on Showtime’s dark comedy “House of Lies,” where he’ll play a love interest of Kristen Bell’s character, Jeannie Van Der Hooven.
Don’t go in expecting a Seth Cohen revival, though. Brody’s character is the owner of a sex toy company. Sandy and Kirsten would be floored, honestly.
Bell and Brody are also set to star in the upcoming film “Some Girls,” in which Brody plays a man trying to make amends with his ex-girlfriends on the eve of his wedding, and Bell plays one of the scorned lovers.
Since his iconic run on “The O.C.,” Brody hasn’t done any live-action television. He did, however, voice a character on MTV’s short-lived animated series, “Good Vibes.”
“House of Lies” returns to Showtime on Sunday, January 13th at 10 p.m. EST.
Adam Brody is ready to service the skies, booking a flight to the set of Fox Searchlight’s romantic comedy “Baggage Claim.”
David E. Talbert (“First Sunday”) is writing, directing and producing the adaptation of his own bestselling 2003 novel.
Paula Patton stars as an unmarried flight attendant who becomes determined to find a man as her younger sister’s wedding approaches. Derek Luke co-stars as her long-time friend and potential love interest.
Brody will play the other male lead, a flamboyant flight attendant who works alongside Patton and Octavia Spencer. He devises a plan to help the protag get engaged before Christmas and works with a team of airport personnel to make sure she crosses paths with several ex-boyfriends who are traveling during the course of the story.
Taye Diggs, Djimon Hounsou, Lauren London and Jill Scott co-star in the pic, which is currently in production.
Role will provide a change of pace for Brody, who will soon be seen playing “Deep Throat” star Harry Reems alongside Amanda Seyfried in “Lovelace.” UTA-repped thesp recently starred opposite Greta Gerwig in Whit Stillman’s “Damsels in Distress” and played Keira Knightley’s boyfriend in “Seeking a Friend For the End of the World.” He also has a trio of indie pics awaiting release including Julian Farino’s “The Oranges,” Rob Meltzer’s comedy “Welcome to the Jungle” and an adaptation of Neil LaBute’s play “Some Girls,” which co-stars Kristen Bell, Zoe Kazan and Jennifer Morrison.
Adam Brody will talk about his upcoming role in ‘The Oranges,’ with Leighton Meester, Hugh Laurie and Catherine Keener on Uinterview. Ask Adam a question by clicking in the top left corner here at http://uinterview.com!
Seth Cohen, the character Adam Brody played on the TV soap The O.C., transformed the concept of the teenage hero-hunk into something earthbound and relatable. Seth was snarky, vulnerable, and mordantly optimistic in a way that a generation of boyish men have been aping ever since. And at 32, the actor still fits the bill, geeking out about an upcoming role alongside Jean-Claude Van Damme (“I mean, JCVD!!!”) and foot fashion (“I am obsessed with no socks!”). His slow build of a movie career fires up with six films in 2012, including the tragicomedy Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, in which Steve Carell confronts the mundanity of the Apocalypse. What would Brody do if he found himself staring down the End Times? “Heroin? It appeals to me more than, like, skydiving. Maybe doing heroin while skydiving?” Or—IDEA TIME!—how about an O.C. reunion movie, à la Saved by the Bell: Wedding in Las Vegas? “Sure. That’d be funny. Put that.” Oral contract, Brody. Consider this shit notarized.

Amanda Seyfried is getting more company in the pornstar biopic Lovelace, with Demi Moore joining the cast to play feminist icon Gloria Steinem and Adam Brody costarring as the mustachioed X-rated actor Harry Reems.
The movie, which began shooting in December, chronicles the provocative, tragic, and controversial life of one Linda Boreman, who — under the name Linda Lovelace — became one of the world’s first mainstream, marquee stars of adult entertainment with 1972′s Deep Throat, which costarred Reems. Claiming she had been violently forced into sex work by her husband, Chuck Traynor (played in the film by Peter Sarsgaard), she later denounced her films, and became a strident antiporn activist. Boreman died in 2002 after a car accident.
Eric Roberts is another new cast member, playing lie-detector expert Nat Laurendi. He was brought in to question Lovelace as a fact-checker for her book Ordeal. The transcript of his questions is harrowing reading, and could easily serve as the framework for a story about her life.
Sharon Stone, Juno Temple, and Wes Bentley also costar in the movie alongside Hank Azaria, Robert Patrick, Bobby Cannavale, and Chris Noth. Lovelace is being directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, best known for another counter-culture movie and online bingo, the Allen Ginsberg film Howl.
Meanwhile, a rival Lovelace biopic titled Inferno is also in the works, starring Malin Ackerman as the infamous porn actress.
Whit Stillman’s “Damsels in Distress” will close out the 68th Venice Film Festival on Saturday, September 10th, it was announced today. Screening out of competition, Stillman’s much-anticipated fourth film joins what looks to be a considerable lineup for the festival, with new works from David Cronenberg, Steven Soderbergh, Roman Polanski, Todd Solondz, Jonathan Demme, Alexander Sokurov, Mary Harron, William Friedkin and Madonna all expected to be in the mix.
Sony Pictures Classics already has domestic rights to the film, which stars Greta Gerwig, Adam Brody, Carrie MacLemore, Megalyn Echikunwoke and Analeigh Tipton.
Nathaniel, a graduate student at USC’s School of Cinematic Arts, is working on a thesis film which stars Adam entitled “The Wager”. He is currently working on raising funds to shoot the short film at the end of July. For as little as $25 for instance, the producers will send contributors a link to the completed film allowing you to be one of the first to see a brand new performance from Adam. If you’re interested in donating, check out the KickStarter page for more information about the project and how to donate. Thanks to Nathaniel for the info!
About “The Wager”
“The Wager” is a short dialogue-driven drama written by critically acclaimed screenwriter and playwright Neil LaBute. A force in American stage and cinema, LaBute’s style takes an unforgiving look at the sordid truths of human nature. Set on the streets of selfishness and deception, this particular story documents a young couple, Steve (Adam Brody) and Becca (Louisa Krause), and their encounter with a homeless man while on their way home from a bar. When the situation escalates and Steve ends up assaulting the homeless man, we witness the couple’s relationship unravel, revealing truths neither were previously willing to admit about themselves or one another.
