In the upcoming Lionsgate drama Luckiest Girl Alive, Carson MacCormac plays a young Dean in a provocative supporting role.
This is a great idea, in my opinion. I can’t wait to get started on it as a cast member… With such a gifted crew and passengers, I have high hopes for a successful voyage. So says Carson, reflecting on his work on the project.
Connie Britton, Mila Kunis, and Finn Wittrock star in the upcoming film adaptation of Jessica Knoll’s best-selling novel. The film follows Ani FaNelli (Kunis), a young woman whose seemingly flawless life in New York is shown to be an illusion.
As she is compelled to relive a horrible event from her adolescent years, the situation worsens. She describes the terrifying experience of being approached by a documentary filmmaker. After that, everything in her life starts to fall apart.
MacCormac’s character, a greedy and cowardly student, is responsible for the horrible atrocities that occurred during Kunis’ teenage years. Carson MacCormac says he was so immersed in the performance that he was scared to death. It’s heartbreaking to get into it now, he says, recalling when he first received the script.
One can tell that MacCormac is an aspiring artist because of his love of literature and the written word. Even though the thriller took place in the 1990s, this talented actor had no trouble keeping up with the lingo or the intensity level of the game.
His favorite parts are those in which he is able to “play characters that are in a different time period, a different world,” he says.
The movie, which Mike Barker directed and Buddy Enright produced, will have audiences on the edge of their seats.
