David Duchovny Goes Full Hippy In First Goats Trailer
Unlike comedians like Zach Galifianakis and Will Ferrell, David Duchovny hasn't dabbled much in the absurd. While he has played strange and unbalanced characters before, most of them have the laid back aura that comes from the actor's low, slow voice. But in Goats Duchovny apparently decided to let his freak flag fly and put his peaceful nature on display.
In the film, based on the Mark Poirier novel and directed by Christopher Neil, Duchovny plays Goat Man, a strange, bearded hippy botanist who takes in a fifteen year old kid. Goats premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and will have a limited release next month. Right now you can check out the brand new trailer, courtesy of Yahoo!
Goats stars Graham Phillips as Ellis, a young man who has been brought up by a strange father figure named Goat Man (Duchovny), and his weird new-age mother Wendy (Vera Farmiga). Ellis then gets accepted into an elite East Coast prep school called Gates Academy and must deal with the consequences of saying goodbye while also coming to terms with the fact that his biological father (Ty Burrell) has gotten remarried and has impregnated a much younger woman (Keri Russell). The film also stars Justin Kirk, and Dakota Johnson. Look for the movie in theaters on August 10th.
