Angela Sarafyan Has Frost Bite; Adds Cold Streak to Landis’ Me Him Her

Angela Sarafyan, a television-based actress who had a couple of stabs at indie gigs such as Gregor Jordan’s The Informers and followed this up with Matt D’Elia’s American Animal and then saw her cred rise with a small part in the final Twilight film and has since added a slew of indie films to her resume (along with one major production opening this week in Paranoia) has, according to The Wrap (and tweets from the actress herself) picked up the part of the antagonist in scribe Max Landis’ directing debut, Me Him Her. Sarafyan will play a character named Heather Frost. Filming is underway in Los Angeles.

Gist: Also starring Dustin Milligan, Luke Bracey and Emily Meade, this is described by Landis as a comedy about sexual identity, which explores love, sex, friendship and sword combat.

Worth Noting: The son of John Landis (An American Werewolf in London) saw his screenplay for Chronicle amongst the annual Black List (2010).

Do We Care?: Following in the footsteps of his critically well-liked Chronicle, we’re hopeful that this emulates some of the characteristics/traits also found in Big Beach Films’ more recent teen coming-of-ager, The Kings of Summer.
