‘The Loft’

Jack Black is easily one of my top ten favorite people of all time. He is the front-man of one of my favorite bands of all time, Tenacious D, and is a vibrant and spasmodic actor that fills me with joy. His latest film The D Train was showcased at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and was well received.

Jack Black plays Dan Landsman, the head of his high school reunion committee, he has the task of convincing his former classmates to attend their reunion. He was the loser who wishes to claim fame with the help of the most popular guy from his high school, Oliver Lawless (James Marsden).

James Marsden has made frequent stops in New Orleans to film movies including The D Train, The Best of Me and The Loft. Check out The SceneCast episode that includes Marsden’s work out regiment for The Best Of Me here.

The D Train is a dramedy directed by Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel. The film also stars effortlessly funny Jeffrey Tambor and one of the funniest females on the planet Kathryn Hahn. The D Train will race into theaters May 8.

Read IFC Films synopsis below:

All his life, Dan Landsman (Jack Black) has never been the cool guy. That’s about to change – if he can convince Oliver Lawless (Marsden), the most popular guy from his high school who’s now the face of a national Banana Boat ad campaign, to show up with him to their class reunion. A man on a mission, Dan travels from Pittsburgh to LA and spins a web of lies to recruit Lawless. But he gets more than he bargains for as the unpredictable Lawless proceeds to take over his home, career, and entire life. Showcasing Jack Black and James Marden’s most outrageous performances to date, THE D TRAIN serves up the question: how far would you go to be popular? Co-starring Kathryn Hahn and Jeffrey Tambor.

by Jordan McGuire on December 16, 2014

Five friends share a newly purchased loft, one that will secretly serve as a safe haven from their married lives. The five friends fall into a pit of lust and adventure until one morning they make a shocking discovery. The body of a dead young woman is found in the loft and the men begin to question each other’s loyalty.

The Loft was partially shot in New Orleans. The film stars James Marsden, Karl Urban, Wentworth Miller, Rachael Taylor and Modern Family‘s Eric Stonestreet.

James Marsden leads the way in this intense thriller. Marsden has been filming a lot in Louisiana recently with roles in The Loft, D-Train, Lee Daniels’ The Butler, 2 Guns, Straw Dogs and The Best of Me, which required him to transform his physique. Scene Health and Fitness columnist Aaron Williamson trained Marsden for that film and talked about the experience here. Williamson also has more of his experiences with Marsden on his official website at aaronwilliamson.net.

The film is directed by Erik Van Looy who also directed the original film Loft in Belgium in 2008. The Loft is set to be released January 23, 2015.
