'Child's' Play

21 October 2009 12:01 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

"We had so much fun writing Love Child," says Robert Stanton. "We had a blast. But I'd be disingenuous if I said I didn't think of it as an acting showcase." Performing in the play was neither his nor co-writer Daniel Jenkins' initial ambition, but as the project progressed, playing 20 characters in a work about theatre seemed the natural thing to do. Now running in repertory Off-Broadway with Lee Blessing's A Body of Water, the comic two-hander depicts an Off-Off-Broadway troupe mounting the Greek tragedy Ion by Euripides. Beleaguered actor-­manager Joel is "struggling to figure out who his family is and where he fits in," says Jenkins, who plays him and other characters. "One of the themes is family. This is about a theatre family, and as we know, it frequently becomes a dysfunctional family. What we look at here is, how does it work? How is it a blessing? »

A Big Big Love

1 April 2009 2:54 AM, PDT | TribecaFilm.com | See recent Tribeca Film news »

Gigantic is the story of two odd ducks falling in love. Paul Dano (whom you last saw preaching and being yelled at by Daniel Day-Lewis in There Will Be Blood) stars as Brian Weathersby, a shy 28-year-old salesman of expensive Swedish mattresses in New York. He has elderly parents (Jane Alexander and Ed Asner) and two older brothers (played by Robert Stanton and Ian Roberts, one of the founding members of the Upright Citizens Brigade). His day-to-day is filled with working on his application to adopt a Chinese baby, and that's pretty much it. When he meets slacker heiress Harriet 'Happy' Lolly (Zooey Deschanel), who's picking up a $14,000 mattress for her overbearing dad (John Goodman), the two fall into a tentative connection, punctuated by strange happenings. Brian is stalked by/has hallucinations of a homeless man who's constantly beating him up, and Happy works nights at some QVC-type television show. »
