Alexandra Daddario

Life in Text

Why Watch? In this lovelorn short from Laurence and Jessica Jacobs, a sad sack dumpee (Tyler Ritter) relives a lost relationship as he explores the physical space created by his ex’s (Alexandra Daddario) text messages. Old words, videos and pictures become signposts for an experience now gone. Channeling “The Last Five Years” via SMS, it finds power in sharing a universal story — one that many of us have experienced multiple times during our dating lives — with simplicity and heart.

Daddario Pitch

Hollywood kicks off the new year in movies this Friday with the release of Texas Chainsaw 3D. The horror sequel stars 26-year-old actress Alexandra Daddario in her first major studio lead role, a gig that came a decade into a career that began with a regular stint on the soap opera All My Children. Since then she played many supporting parts on the big and small screen (as well as on the web) before landing the job playing Annabeth Chase, one of the main demigod characters of the Percy Jackson movies (the second of which opens in August). However, Texas Chainsaw 3D actually marks her second time playing the lead in a slasher film, the first being in the indie flick Bereavement, shot in 2007 but not released in theaters until last year. Even before that, Daddario appeared in a short film, as many young actors now do when starting out. And while she’s really only in Pitch for literally half a minute, I think it’s always interesting to see what actors were doing early on, in this case seven years ago. But I also thought I’d share this film because it deals with the movie business. Written and produced and co-starring Jason Fuchs (who co-wrote this year’s Ice Age: Continental Drift) and directed by Ian Gelfand (an associate producer on the great 2011 doc A Matter of Taste: Serving Up  Paul Liebrandt), the short is about two hotshot NYU film school grads (Fuchs and Another Earth‘s Robin Taylor) who try […]

Whether you’re ready for another Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie or not, it’s coming, and it’s coming in 3D. The John Luessonhop directed The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D is set for an October 2012 release, so it’s time to start hearing some casting news. According to Variety, this new film picks up right after the classic Tobe Hooper original, and it will star Percy Jackson’s Alexandra Daddario as the lead character Heather. Adding to this, Deadline Plainfield is reporting that the movie follows the Heather character to a small town in Texas, where she is attempting to collect on an inheritance that, unbeknownst to her, includes interactions with her less than well-adjusted cousin Leatherface. Along for the ride is her best friend Nikki, who is said to have a bit of an attitude problem, and will be played by Lost’s Tania Raymonde. So by my count, that’s two pretty young girls and one Leatherface getting together for the same movie. And if there’s one thing that I know about Leatherface, it’s that when he sees a pretty girl he tries to Texas chainsaw massacre them. It may not be high art, but I’ll take it. And I’ll take it in 3D to boot. I better get some limbs flying at my face.

This week, Fat Guy Kevin Carr starts a new regimen of drugs that comes in a clear little pill. The guy on the street corner told him that it would unlock the full potential of his mind, and he assured Kevin it was FDA approved. Why would this guy lie to him? While waiting for the drugs to kick in, Kevin decided to take a trip across the American southwest and search for skinny little aliens with fat man voices. He knows he’s safe, even if he’s picked up by the cops, because he’s retained a dead-sexy lawyer who runs his practice out of the back of his Lincoln Town Car.
