'True Blood' Star Deborah Ann Woll Joins Zac Efron In 'Are We Officially Dating?'

11 October 2012 1:00 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's only a matter of time before the talented and (very) lovely "True Blood" star Deborah Ann Woll begins to break out beyond the now silly HBO show (not that it was Shakespeare to begin with -- but how many more subplots can it add?). This summer she had a very nice minor, but important turn in the excellent, but unfortunately ignored "Ruby Sparks" and in case you forgot, she was in early talks for Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" for the role of Elizabeth before the movie was dumped by Universal, in its first incarnation. But after a number of indies that did her talents no favors ("Catch .44," the recently released "Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You") she's now landed a role opposite Zac Efron that will hopefully boost her profile. Woll has joined the upcoming comedy "Are We Officially Dating?" that will hopefully be better than its title. »

The displeasure one feels in watching, or simply enduring, the indie dramedy "Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You" is directly proportional to how throughly selfish and unsympathetic the lead character James truly is. When we're first introduced to the misanthrope, he's on the roof of his home in New York City with the family dog, whom he ties to a steam pipe, only to have it watch, obviously concerned, as he contemplates dropping himself to his death into the street below. And then toward the end of the film, when he comes across the dead body of a relative (oh, spoiler? -- there will be more, and believe us, you don't want to watch this movie), instead of trying to find help or alert someone, he calmly sits down and opens up the birthday present he was going to receive from them. These are the heights of his self-involvement, »
