Affluenza is defined as the guilt or lack of motivation experienced by people who have made or inherited large amounts of money.  Affluenza’s Fisher (Ben Rosenfield) doesn’t suffer from it, but Nicola Peltz and Gregg Sulkin’s characters most certainly do.  Fisher’s an aspiring photographer who opts to ditch his home in Ithaca to spend the summer at his cousin Kate’s (Peltz) house in an extremely wealthy area on the North Shore of Long Island.  The plan is to get away for a bit, take some pictures and try to get himself into a good school, but Fisher winds up getting caught up in Kate’s world of big parties, fancy things and an excess of self-indulgence.

With Affluenza heading towards a July 11th theatrical and On Demand debut, we got the chance to sit down with Peltz and Sulkin to discuss their very entitled characters, faking some golf skills and what they’re really drinking and smoking on set.  Hit the jump to catch all of that as well as Sulkin’s hopes for the second season of MTV’s Faking It and how Peltz feels about the divide between the enormous box office and rock bottom critical reception for Transformers: Age of Extinction.

James Marsden has signed on to star opposite Elizabeth Banks in the comedy Walk of Shame.  The story follows “a high-strung news anchor (Banks) who, after a wild night out, finds herself locked out on the street with no phone, money, ID or car, and embarks on a series of misadventures as she finds her way to the most important job interview of her life.”  Steven Brill (Mr. Deeds) wrote and will direct.  Tom Rosenberg, Gary Lucchesi, and Sidney Kimmel are producing.  Banks and Marsden ought to be a nice comedic pairing, so while the logline doesn’t hook me, the casting does.

Hit the jump for details on Gregg Sulkin‘s starring role in 1990.

We have a couple of casting bits to bring your way tonight. First up, Gregg Sulkin (Disney’s Wizards of Waverly Place) has signed on to the indie pic White Frog. The actor joins a cast that already includes Margaret Cho, Joan Chen, and B.D. Wong. According to Variety, Sulkin will play the son of a well-known lawyer who is having a difficult time in the wake of his best friend’s passing. Directed by Quentin Lee from a script by Ellie and Fabienne Wen, White Frog begins shooting next week in Los Angeles. In addition to Frog, Sulkin also has a role alongside Cary Elwes, Samantha Mathis, and Adelaide Clemens in the upcoming romance Camilla Dickinson.

Next, Ari Graynor (Whip It) and Lauren Miller (Superbad) have been cast as the leads in the indie comedy For a Good Time, Call…. Co-written by Miller with Katie Naylon, the pic tells the story of women who get the entrepreneurial itch and start a phone sex business. As is expected given the material, For a Good Time, Call… is expected to take on an R-rated tone and will begin shooting in Los Angeles next month. Per Risky Business, the film will be cameo friendly with Miller’s fiancee, Seth Rogen, being rumored for a potential role. Graynor will executive produce the pic with short-film/commercials director Jamie Travis making his feature directorial debut. Speaking of Graynor, the actress can be seen opposite Colin Hanks in the comedy Lucky which hits theaters this weekend.
