Sofia Coppola + Party Boy = Somewhere

Posted by LiveFor on May 20, 2009

Chris Pontius has signed on for a role in Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Jackass star will play Sammy, best friend of the character played by Stephen Dorff, a decadent, bad-boy actor living at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood who begins to re-examine his life after a surprise visit from his 11-year-old daughter (Elle Fanning).

Coppola, who wrote, directed and produced Marie Antoinette and Lost In Translation, is doing the same for Somewhere. Francis Ford Coppola, Fred Roos and Paul Rassam are executive producers on the American Zoetrope/Focus Features production.

No production date has been set.

  1. At first the presence of Pontius was a distraction, but he wound up being the most interesting thing about this film.
