'Butter' Cast Churns Up Comedy Gold
Butter - a single word, two syllables, millions of applications and one of the best movies of 2012.
Starring Jennifer Garner, Ty Burrell, Olivia Wilde, Ashley Greene, Rob Corddry and the scene-stealing debut of Yara Shahidi, Butter is a sharply observed comedy that takes place in the world of competitive butter carving. The script, direction and casting are sensational, but the number one draw is Jennifer Garner's stunning portrayal of the diabolically delicious Laura Pickler.
Part Tracy Flick from Election, part Sarah Palin, Laura Pickler not only represents a career-best for Garner, but also one of the year's most sensational, memorable and sure-to-be Oscar-nominated performances! Thanks to a perfect mix of high strung determination and calculating cruelty, you will love to hate Laura -- much like her neighbors do!
I recently caught up with the Butter cast at the NYC press day to talk about this sensational cinematic serving, find out what attracted each of them to their roles and learn which kind of competition the actors believe they could win!
Butter hits theaters on October 5.
