Mischa Barton
Maxim covergirl and beloved "O.C." corpse Mischa Barton will play the lead in the indie "Homecoming."

Described by Variety as a "stalker thriller," the project is set to co-star Matt Long ("Jack & Bobby"), Jessica Stroup ("Reaper"), and Michael Landes ("The Wedding Bells").

Frank Hannah's ("The Cooler") script focuses on a golden boy who returns to his hometown with his new girlfriend only to discover that his old high school flame (Barton) has gone just a little "Fatal Attraction" on his memory.

"Homecoming" will be directed by Morgan J. Freeman, the "Hurricane" helmer who probably has to say "No, not *that* Morgan Freeman" an awful lot.

Since being killed off "The O.C." at the end of its third season, Barton has been busy making unreleased movies. Her potential upcoming credits include "Closing the Ring," "Virgin Territory," "Finding tATu," "Walled In," "Don't Fade Away" and "Assassination of a High School President."

Rilo Kiley Video Wires and Waves Released! Created and Filmed by Morgan J Freeman

Morgan became fascinated with Rilo Kiley very early in each others career. Either Rilo Kiley or Elected have created music for several of Morgan's films. I also am a huge Rilo Kiley fan and I hope you enjoy this video that showcases one of their best songs called "Wires and Waves" which was on the album "Take Offs and Landings". Good work Jenny Lewis, Blake Sennett, Pierre and their old drummer Dave Rock! This video was filmed way back in 2001 at the Knitting Factory, Mojave Desert and other cool locations. Brings back nice memories of the earlier days of the group!
