Haley Joel Osment Set For Kevin Smith's Tusk
He's also in Me Him Her

Haley Joel Osment

If it seems like Haley Joel Osment has been off the radar for a while recently, that’s because he has: he took a break from acting to attend New York University’s Tisch School Of The Arts. He’s planning to get back into performing with two new films – Kevin Smith’s horror thriller Tusk and Max Landis’ Me Him Her.

Well, we say getting back, but he’s already back, as Landis wrapped up work on Me Him Her recently. Though the Twitter troublemaker is keeping most of the details under a convenient hat, we do know that it boils down to three young people going through a quarter-life crisis, confronting love, sex and friendship in the midst of a sexual identity dilemma. You know, the usual. Osment will appear alongside leads Dustin Milligan, Luke Bracey and Emily Meade.

As for Tusk, Smith cooked up the idea after spotting a Gumtree ad for a man requesting a roommate willing to dress up and act as a walrus. Spinning the idea further on his Smodcast podcast, Smith's joke became a script that now has Justin Long playing a podcaster who answers a similar ad. He ends up trapped in a nightmare with a lunatic (played by Red State’s Michael Parks). Osment will be Teddy, Long’s friend and co-host, who joins forces with his girlfriend (Genesis Rodriguez) to try to find him.

Kevin will be getting the cameras cranking next month in North Carolina, once more delayed his planned retirement from moviemaking. As for Osment, he’s also got Amazon comedy series Alpha House and IFC miniseries The Spoils Of Babylon to keep him in the public eye.
