Mae Whitman takes on Bella Thorne in exclusive trailer for 'The DUFF'

Every group of friends has a DUFF—a designated ugly fat friend. At least, that’s what Wesley (Robbie Amell) tells Bianca (Mae Whitman) in the upcoming comedy, The DUFF … right after he lets it slip that she’s the DUFF of her circle. So, now what?

In the comedy, from director Ari Sandel, Bianca enlists the help of Wesley to essentially de-DUFF herself and then overthrow the leader of the plastics school, Madison (Bella Thorne). Bianca’s other source of wisdom? Ken Jeong, obviously.

EW has an exclusive first look at the newest trailer for the film, set to premiere during tonight’s Pretty Little Liars Christmas episode, which airs at 8 p.m. on ABC Family.

The DUFF hits theaters February 20.

Casting Net: De Niro to play a cop in 'Candy Store'; Plus, Benjamin Bratt replaces Pacino, more

• Since his Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for Silver Linings Playbook, Robert De Niro has been on a bit of a career upswing. He’s set to star in Syriana-director Stephen Gaghan’s Candy Store about an undercover agent-turned-Brooklyn cop and the seedy underworld that he and his partners uncover. Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty) and Omar Sy (The Intouchables) also star. De Niro is currently filming David O. Russell’s American Hustle. [Variety]

• Benjamin Bratt (Law & Order) will jump in to voice the villain in Despicable Me 2. Al Pacino had been cast in the role and had already voiced a number of scenes, but dropped out very recently due to creative differences. Bratt is no stranger to animated work and can be heard in Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 as well. Despicable Me 2 is scheduled for a July 3 release, and features the voice talents of Kristen Wiig, Steve Carell, Russell Brand, and Steve Coogan. [Deadline]
