One of the many great aspects of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is newcomer RJ Cyler, who’s a scene stealer as Greg’s (Thomas Mann) best friend and filmmaking collaborator. It was just over two years ago when his family moved from Florida to California in hopes of seeing Cyler’s acting career take off. And thanks to Me and Earl and the Dying Girl – it did.
Whether it’s the Spaghetti Western inspired Casa De Mi Padre or the somber drama Smashed, Nick Offerman usually manages to steal the show. He and fellow character Christopher McDonald (Quiz Show, Happy Gilmore) are part of the cast for Believe Me, a comedy which opens September 26.
The story centers on a college student named Sam (Alex Russell of Chronicle fame) who, along with several friends, creates a fake charity to embezzle money and pay for their educational expenses. Sam’s quest for dirty money hits a snag when he falls in love with his fake charity’s tour manager Callie (Johanna Braddy). During the tour’s final night, he must decide whether to come clean with his shady operation or stay quiet and keep his share of the dough.
