It seems like former cast members of The OC are having a bit of a renaissance lately. Ben McKenzie’s on Southland, Chris Carmack is heading to Nashville, and Mischa Barton is in the new film A Resurrection. Adam Brody attributes the attention to 2013 marking 10 years since we got to know Seth Cohen and his crew. We caught up with Brody at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, where he is starring in Some Girl(s) from writer Neil LaBute (In the Company of Men). The drama has all the classic elements of a LaBute film — the intimacy of a play, loads of dark humor, and a manipulative protagonist.
It follows Brody’s character, a writer, who on the eve of his wedding decides to go back and rehash old relationships by visiting his former flames. Kristen Bell, Zoe Kazan, and Emily Watson costar as some of his past loves. Unlike comedies that have used a similar trope (see: High Fidelity), Some Girl(s) is dark, and much like the 2005 play it grew out, puts an emphasis on each relationship scene by almost being a movie unto itself.
Read on to find out what Brody and director Daisy von Scherler Mayer (The Carrie Dairies, Mad Men), had to say about the film and check out an exclusive clip.
