Marc Jacobs…an actor?


March Jacobs has a lot of titles under his name, but he seems to have added an additional one. Not one we’d expect either. ACTOR. Yes, that’s right. The world famous designer is starring in an independent thriller titled Disconnect. He plays one among many characters caught up in various Internet conundrums. Disconnect is directed by the Academy Award nominated MurderballHenry-Alex Rubi. 

And if that doesn’t impress you, its cast will. Cast includes: Jason Bateman, Hope Davis, Frank Grillo, Alexander Skarsgård, Paula Patton and Max Theiriot.

But the kicker comes in Jacbo’s role– a “pimp” luring vulnerable teenagers into the online world of chat room prostitution.

The movie to be released in U.S. theatres April 12, 2013.
