Simon Killer Hits VOD; Brady Corbet Finds Fountain of Youth in Baumbach’s “While We’re Young”

As the IFC folks set up Simon Killer for its VOD release on Netflix, itunes and Amazon, trailblazing actor Brady Corbet continues to stockpile what will be a huge ’14 campaign of indie and foreign film appearances with a part in Noah Baumbach’s While We’re Young. Deadline also mentions that Corbet will also be featured on HBO miniseries Olive Kitteridge.

Gist: Featuring Ben Stiller, Amanda Seyfried, Naomi Watts, Charles Grodin and up-and-coming actor Adam Driver, this is about how an uptight documentary filmmaker and his wife loosen up a bit after they befriend a free-spirited younger couple. Beastie Boys’ Adam Horovitz is also on board.

Worth Noting: Just some of Corbet’s 2014 projects include Andrea Di Stefano’s Paradise Lost, Olivier Assayas’ Sils Maria and Mia Hansen-Løve’s Eden.

Do We Care?: Regardless if he is pinch-hitting (Melancholia, Martha Marcy May Marlene) or among the leads (going back to Mysterious Skin, Funny Games U.S. to Simon Killer) Corbet is an all-star team member in auteur film sphere – plus Baumbach’s Frances Ha is among the best titles of 2013.
