Ewan McGregor cuddled up to his co-star Melanie Laurent on the set of their new movie, Beginners in Los Angeles yesterday. The duo shared a scene with an adorable pup who sadly did not receive a credit on IMdb so I couldn’t tell you his name!
Melanie, who just had a hit run in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, is following in the footsteps of her compatriot and also good friend Marion Cotillard. This will be her second major American film to hit the big screen.
In this Mike Mills indie film, McGregor stars a young man rocked by two announcements from his elderly father (Christopher Plummer)…one, that he has terminal cancer, and two, that he’s coming out of the closet.
Also starring is Croatian actor Goran Visnjic whom you might remember from his run on ER, is rumored to be playing the lover of veteran actor, Plummer’s character.
Sadly, the film is not slated to hit theaters till sometime in 2011.
