Tag: Zoe Kazan (1-5 of 5)
After the success of New Girl‘s post-Super Bowl episode, Jake Johnson is hoping lightning strikes again this week as his indie film The Pretty One opens.
In the film, which premiered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks) does double duty as twin sisters. When one passes away, the other assumes her twin’s identity and falls in love with her sister’s boyfriend (Johnson). “Zoe Kazan does an amazing job in that movie,” says Johnson. “I think she’s such a phenomenal actress and just kills it.”
For anyone put off by the stranger-than-fiction plotline, Johnson qualifies, “It’s a romantic movie… a sweet story.” Click through for proof via an exclusive clip, which shows off the two leads’ chemistry, as well a few peeks at Johnson and Kazan at work. READ FULL STORY
Toronto: Skinny-dipping Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan enjoy (but now regret) nude swim in 'The F Word'
What part of making The F Word did Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan enjoy the most?
That was their answer to a question from an audience member after the romantic-comedy screened Saturday at the Toronto International Film Festival.
The two actors, who star as friends (that’s the “F” word in question) who are hiding a mutual attraction for each other, answered without hesitation.
In select theaters now, Ruby Sparks tells the story of a heartbroken author with writer’s block, who suddenly meets his dream girl — but only because he has written her. The movie stars real life couple Paul Dano and Zoe Kazan (Revolutionary Road), with a script penned by Kazan. EW movie critics Owen Gleiberman and Lisa Schwarzbaum discuss the film, which was directed by Little Miss Sunishine helmers Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, in the latest installment of “Movie Talk with Owen and Lisa.”
“If there is any review that’s easy for a critic to write, it’s of a bad Hollywood romantic comedy,” Gleiberman says. “But now relief has arrived in the form of a mini wave of indie romantic comedies. And I emphasize these are not quirky, annoying indie romances, they are genuine romantic comedies, but told with a freshness. Case in point… Ruby Sparks.” Watch the rest of their chat below!
