Avan Jogia (Roman Mercer) is Danny in THE ARTISTS’ WIFE, the story of Claire (Lena Olin), whose husband, an acclaimed abstract painter (played by Bruce Dern) is diagnosed with dementia and might not be able to finish the paintings for his final show. Claire keeps her husband’s illness a secret from the art community, and tries to help him reconnect with his estranged daughter (Juliet Rylance) and her son. (Jogia is the grandson’s nanny.) As her husband’s illness progresses, Claire, once a promising painter in her own right, must decide whether to remain in the shadows. The film is now in post-production, and should be ready for release this summer.
Jogia is also bad boy musician Berkeley in the horror comedy ZOMBIELAND: DOUBLE TAP, a sequel to ZOMBIELAND (2009). Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, and Emma Stone are back as Columbus, Tallahassee, and Wichita, respectively. Berkeley (reportedly) will be romantically involved with Abigail Breslin‘s character Little Rock. (Characters are mostly named after cities. Zoey Deutch will be Madison.) Bill Murray, who died in the original film will somehow return for the sequel, as the gang moves to the American heartland to battle “evolved zombies”. ZOMBIELAND: DOUBLE TAP will be released in the US on 11 October. Continue reading →
