Mary-Kate and Ben Kingsley Are The Wackness

It's no secret that I love me some Mary-Kate Olsen and was especially excited to hear about her career taking a positive step with her role on the excellent (and coming back tonight!) "Weeds," but this newest bit of casting news is a little disheartening to say the least.


First of all, it's titled The Wackness
Yup, that's right. She and Ben Kingsley are starring in a comedy inexplicably set in 1994 about "a troubled teenage drug dealer and a drug-addled psychiatrist — after the former trades pot for therapy sessions, then falls for the doctor's daughter." Yikes.

The Good?
Sir Ben Kingsley generally makes pretty good career decisions, right? Sigh, least MK has "Weeds."

The Bad?
Sadly it seems, everything else. From the ludicrous plot line to the outrageous costumes (check out some on set photos here), I fear this may not be the role that catapults little MK to the acting elite. And Ben Kingsley's hair and shoes are definitely not helping. I suppose there's always a chance it'll be a good movie, but at this point I'm just hoping it's forgotten quickly.
