After proving his skills as a leading comedic actor on the big screen in studio comedies like “Horrible Bosses” and indies like the great “Sleeping With Other People,” Jason Sudeikis is taking the time to show off his dramatic side with slightly more serious material. Along with the upcoming Jesse Owens biopic “Race,” Sudeikis will be starring alongside Rebecca Hall in the indie “Tumbledown,” which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last year.
Sudeikis plays Andrew, a music scholar heading to Maine in order to write the biography of a late musician from the area. The only thing standing in his way is a protective widow (Hall), who agrees to the biography only if she can join as co-writer. This compromise soon leads to unlikely friendship that soon evolves into something more romantic.
Starz Digital will release “Tumbledown” in New York and Los Angeles on February 5, with a nationwide and On Demand release planned for February 12. Check out the exclusive poster below.
