Among the films to screen at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year was Justin Long's A Case of You, a romantic comedy that stars Long as a writer who makes a few alterations to his online profile in an effort to win over Birdie Hazel, a Brooklynite played by Evan Rachel Wood. As the new theatrical trailer indicates things don't go quite as he planned.
Sienna Miller and Brendan Fraser are the latest actors to sign on to the Justin Long-penned romantic comedy A Case of You, joining a cast that includes Long himself, his co-writer Keir O'Donnell, Evan Rachel Wood, Peter Dinklage and Busy Philipps. The movie centers on a young writer who looks for love online, and uses his "gift for fiction"--as David Mamet would say--to enhance his dating site profile
As great (and memorable) as the Mac ads were, Long has appeared in enough films before and since then to show his true potential as an actor. He’s also done some TV work, including voice-work in FX’s new animated comedy Unsupervised, as well as a charming recurring guest appearance Fox’s New Girl. It looks like we’ll be getting to see his potential as a writer (and a producer) with the upcoming indie film A Case of You.
