Leighton Meester Tastes THE ORANGES with Hugh Laurie and Catherine Keener

     February 26, 2010


Leighton Meester has been spotted joining the cast of The Oranges, an indie dramatic comedy also co-starring Hugh Laurie and Catherine Keener. The plot, another variation of the May-December romance theme that has struck critical gold recently with An Education and Crazy Heart, has Laurie’s character entering a relationship with the daughter (Meester) of Keener’s character. Their romance has unforeseen consequences, both dramatic and comedic. The script is from relative newcomers Jay Reiss and Ian Helfer but the direction is in the hands of veteran sitcom director Julian Farino (Entourage, The Office). Though Meester has a relatively thin filmography, the inclusion of solid performers like Laurie and Keener should make this film one to watch out for. [Variety]
