First up from Variety comes news of Graham’s latest role in the rock-and-roll odyssey. The picture is based on Ric Browde’s novel, “While I’m Dead…Feed the Dog,” as adapted by writer/director Tim Garrick. The film also stars Nat Wolff, Austin Stowell, Dylan McDermott, Elisabeth Shue and Cary Elwes. Graham also recently added The Hangover Part III to her upcoming roles. Here’s a bit of the book description from While I’m Dead…Feed the Dog (via Amazon):
“My publishers are trying to convince me that books are like albums and sell better when they are released posthumously. Seeing the point, I ask if I can at least fake my own death, but it seems that is fundamentally dishonest and they flatly refuse to be involved in any such fraud. “So just in case I’ve croaked by the time you read this (and everyone but me is filthy rich), here is my story: one day I’m trying to get into the pants of the most beautiful girl in the world, Nina Pennington, and the next day I’m in the back of a limo on the road to rock’n'roll superstardom opening up for Bowie. But we hit a bump or two — a few dead Mafia hitmen here, a nyphomaniac next door there, not to mention a few dying Latin teachers, narcoleptic nuns, inept policemen, unscupulous laywers, buffoon reporters, huckster televangelists and greedy relatives — and now for some unknown reason a lot of people don’t want to talk to me anymore.”
Next up via The Playlist is a trio of additions to The F Word. Elan Mastai (The Samaritan) adapted the T.J. Dawe and Michael Rinaldi play, “Cigars and Toothpaste” for Dowse. Radcliffe stars as Wallace, a young man who meets the enchanting Chantry (Zoe Kazan) at a party. Unfortunately, Chantry has a long-term boyfriend, so Wallace hides his affections and the two develop a friendship. Davis will share scenes with Wallace’s friend, played by Adam Driver (Girls). There is no news yet as to what roles are lined up for Spall and Park. Production is currently underway in Toronto.
