'True Blood' Star Deborah Ann Woll Joins Zac Efron In 'Are We Officially Dating?'

It's only a matter of time before the talented and (very) lovely "True Blood" star Deborah Ann Woll begins to break out beyond the now silly HBO show (not that it was Shakespeare to begin with -- but how many more subplots can it add?). This summer she had a very nice minor, but important turn in the excellent, but unfortunately ignored "Ruby Sparks" and in case you forgot, she was in early talks for Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" for the role of Elizabeth before the movie was dumped by Universal, in its first incarnation. But after a number of indies that did her talents no favors ("Catch .44," the recently released "Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You") she's now landed a role opposite Zac Efron that will hopefully boost her profile.

Deborah Ann Woll

It's only a matter of time before the talented and (very) lovely "True Blood" star Deborah Ann Woll begins to break out beyond the now silly HBO show (not that it was Shakespeare to begin with -- but how many more subplots can it add?). This summer she had a very nice minor, but important turn in the excellent, but unfortunately ignored "Ruby Sparks" and in case you forgot, she was in early talks for Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" for the role of Elizabeth before the movie was dumped by Universal, in its first incarnation. But after a number of indies that did her talents no favors ("Catch .44," the recently released "Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You") she's now landed a role opposite Zac Efron that will hopefully boost her profile.

Woll has joined the upcoming comedy "Are We Officially Dating Yet?" that will hopefully be better than its title. The Black List script penned by Tom Gormican (a producer on the upcoming comedy omnibus "Movie 43"), who will also direct, brings together a fairly standard premise, with three buds in New York City who vow to stay single, but each wind up falling in love. Woll will play the ex-wife of one of three three dudes.

This is moving right along and will shoot in Manhattan next month. Hopefully it will allow Woll to step up to bigger and better things. [Deadline
