Fans of Gilmore Girls watched Alexis Bledel‘s Rory grow from a prep school teenager into a college co-ed.
Now Bledel will be showing up as a university graduate who’s about to experience a “pre-life crisis” in her new film Post-Grad.
According to the MTV Movies Blog, Bledel plays Ryden Malby, a young woman who leaves college and “the slow process of finding a new life, a new job and new love.”
The film also stars Jane Lynch and Carol Burnett, which means it should at least a little hilarious. I mean, come on — those two women alone are easily two of the funniest on film. Together, they can only create pure magic. Burnett plays a “grumpy grandma” and Lynch is her daughter-in-law — I’m already excited.
According to Wikipedia, bisexual musician Missy Higgins is rumored to be working on songs for the film’s soundtrack, which would give the movie a little bit more gay (as if Jane Lynch weren’t enough.) Higgins lent a song to The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2, so perhaps Bledel is a fan.
Post-Grad hits theaters in August, but if you’re looking for Alexis Bledel before then, you can see her on the two-hour series finale of ER on April 2. She will play an intern named Julia Wise. Even if she’s in every scene, it won’t be enough for me, and I’m sure I’ll be seeing Post-Grad, despite its likely predictability.
