Taissa Farmiga, Spencer Lofranco, and Nicholas Braun signed on to the indie dramedy Admissions. Andy Garcia and Vera Farmiga star as “a man and woman who fall in love while taking their children on a college admissions tour.” According to THR, Lofranco will play Garcia’s son and Taissa Farmiga will play Vera Farmiga’s daughter. The common last name and 21-year age gap between them sounds perfect for an on-screen mother-daughter duo. But in fact, the Farmigas are actually sisters. Braun will play an upperclassmen who is leading the tour.
Lofranco is new to the business, but I like what I saw of Braun and especially Farmiga on their respective basic cable shows, 10 Things I Hate About You and American Horror Story. Writer/directors Glenn German and Adam Rodgers secured a nice cast for their feature directorial debut. Shooting begins next month in Spokane, Washington.
