The Skeleton Twins
While Kristen Wiig has already played her breakout role in "Bridesmaids," and has used that opportunity to forge her own path in Hollywood, including lining up a new directorial gig, we've been waiting for her "Saturday Night Live" co-star Bill Hader to get his shot. He's certainly lined up no shortage of small roles in a number of movies (everything from "Superbad" to "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby"), but in "The Skeleton Twins" he co-stars with Wiig with pair leading the dramedy.

For whatever reason, comedians have never gotten the same respect as their dramatic counterparts — that is, until they take on more serious material. The road to respect is littered with actors making the transition from comedy to drama (think Steve Carell in "Little Miss Sunshine" or Bill Murray in "Broken Flowers") and latest pair to cross over are former-”SNL” stars Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader, who both deliver impressive turns as a pair of depressive siblings in the dramedy “The Skeleton Twins.” Centering on Maggie (Wiig) and Milo (Hader), the film opens with their concurrent, unsuccessful, suicide attempts. Maggie is a dental assistant living in the small New York town she grew up in, while Milo is a struggling actor in LA whose recent breakup sent him off the deep end.

Boyhood
With the Sundance Film Festival in full swing, our team of writers are on the ground hustling from screening to screening, trying to find time to write in between and then eventually sleep. If they're lucky, they'll manage to get a meal in somewhere. For us back at home, we're continuing to look at the promo material to get a sense of what's unspooling, and a few more images have arrived today to help that out.

Last week we brought you word that Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard and Beastie Boy Ad-Rock where bringing their musical skills to a couple of films headed to Sundance by providing a score (Lynn Shelton's "Laggies" and the baseball flick "No No: A Dockumentary," respectively). Well, that's just the tip of the iceberg. As you might suspect, the worlds of indie film and indie music aren't so far apart and there will be a lot of music to be heard in the films headed to Park City next week, so let's dive in...

Funny people doing funny things... It's not all gritty, kitchen sink drama at Sundance this year, with some good (supernatural) laughs to be found.

"Bill Hader and I have a project together where we play twins, both incredibly depressed, and it’s actually really serious. It’s already written. It’s called 'The Skeleton Twins.' We’re just hoping that financing will come along soon, but it’s a great project," Anna Faris told Vulture this spring. How things change. Presumably, the comic actress is taking some time to spend with her new baby boy, but luckily for Hader the project is moving on and it now reteams him with an old friend.
