Star Apps: Jim Rash and Nat Faxon
Jim Rash and Nat Faxon have the creative synergy that collaborators kill for. Although Rash is famous for his Dean Pelton role on NBC’s “Community” and Faxon, for starring on Fox’s “Ben and Kate” as well as film roles in “Zookeeper,” “Bad Teacher,” and “Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story,” when the two work together, it’s Oscar-worthy. The two won an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for co-writing “The Descendants,” in 2012.
Thankfully, the duo have joined forces once again, this time to write and direct “The Way, Way Back,” the poignant coming-of-age story of an introverted teen who breaks out of his shell over a life-changing family vacation. Out July 5th and starring Liam James (as 14-year-old Duncan), Toni Collette (as his mother, Pam), and Steve Carrell (as her domineering boyfriend, Trent), it’s the perfect antidote to some of the more mindless summer blockbusters.
