I’ve always had a fondness for Josh Lucas. He makes terrible movies, but he has an easygoing likable thing going for him, and you gotta admit that (real) Southern accent he sported in Sweet Home Alabama had a certain pantie-wetting factor. Sadly, it looks like, in his effort to make the A-list, he overshot with the risible Poseidon, and we’ve barely seen him since.
So, what does an actor do when his career is stalling? He gets naked for a movie that looks as though it’s only audience will be on late-night HBO. Below is the trailer for Death in Love which stars, in addition to Lucas, Adam Brody, Jacqueline Bisset, and Lukas Haas. It debuted at Sundance in January 2008 and it’s been sitting on a shelf every since, probably because — at least going by the trailer — it looks fairly incoherent. It’s about a guy who runs a scam modeling agency who has become bored with sex and life in general, until he meets a younger man (Brody) who brings to his life some excitement and purpose.
Whatever. There’s a lot of ass in the trailer, if that’s your bag.
