Brief Interviews With Hideous Men

No, this is not a new segment... it's actually the title of John Krasinski's new film!

Coming this month is Brief Interviews With Hideous Men, a film written and directed by Mr. Krasinski... ooooh we're impressed! He's multi-talented...

Let's not get ahead of ourselves... it IS based on a 1999 book by author David Foster Wallace. Either way, this movie is supposed to be reeeaaallly great, very original, and it was even the official selection of the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.

The film's narrative is different than a regular movie. It follows Sara, a woman who is interviewing various men as part of her graduate studies. There's something kinda iffy about all of them, each posessing a less than desireable charactaristic that Sara learns all about. She also finds that each of their stories relate to her life in some way.

Some of the subjects of her interviews include Krasinski himeslf, Ben Shenkman, Will Arnett, Michael Cerveris, Corey Stoll, Chris Messina, Max Minghella, Will Forte, and Dominic Cooper.
