Latest News • Allison Janney Surprises Press At White House Briefing

Allison Janney and Chris Lowell, both of whom appeared in The Help, have joined Jessica Szohr and Rose McIver in Light Years, a romantic drama indie that began shooting this week in New York.

Maggie Kiley is directing the feature, which expands and builds upon the story she told with her award-winning short Some Boys Don’t Leave which starred Jesse Eisenberg. Kiley wrote the screenplay with Matthew Mullen.
Lowell is playing a boy who is heartbroken over a girl (McIver) and begins a relationship with Szohr’s character, though he can’t move past the one with whom he believes he is meant to be with. When he goes to work at an observatory, he meets an astronomer (Janney) who helps guide him back to the right path.
Clark Gregg and Peter Jacobson are also in the movie.
Paul Finkel and Jason Potash of What A World Productions are producing along with Kyle Heller and Gina Resnick under their VariEnt banner.
Janney recently wrapped Liberal Arts, Josh Radnor’s follow-up to his directorial debut Happythankyoumoreplease and has the indie Struck by Lightning in the can.

    Saw “The Help” yesterday and thought you did GREAT JOB. How did they get someone so pretty to look so old; must have taken hours!
    The last scene with you and Emma Stone as your daughter was very moving. I think all of us would like to know that our Mothers are proud of us. Kudos to Kathryn Stockett!

    Saw you on Ellen. You are always a treat to watch. Glad that you repeat as her guest.
    Always fun. On a personal note….I bought a tiffani-type lamp at a store in Burbank, CA
    area. It has two palm trees with a hammock with lovers. I was told that you bought the
    stores other lamp. That was about 3 years agos. Do you still have it?.
