To celebrate the release of THE ORANGES on DVD and Blu-ray, THN have this exclusive – and quite brilliant – Hugh Laurie infographic that covers his entire career so far and let me tell you, it’s quite astonishing! For those who don’t know, THE ORANGES is a touching new comedy-drama starring Hugh Laurie and Leighton Meester who become unlikely lovers among a close family friendship.
David and Paige Walling (Hugh Laurie – TV Series House, Catherine Keener – Where the Wild Things Are) and Terry and Cathy Ostroff (Oliver Platt – Please Give, Allison Janney – The Help) are best friends and neighbours living on Orange Drive in suburban New Jersey. Their comfortable existence goes awry when prodigal daughter Nina Ostroff (Leighton Meester – Date Night), newly broken up with her fiancé, returns home for Thanksgiving after a five-year absence. Rather than developing an interest in the successful son of her neighbours, Toby Walling (Adam Brody – TV Series The O.C.), which would please both families, it’s her parents’ best friend David who captures Nina’s attention.
Here’s the trailer:
THE ORANGES features a top class ensemble cast including Hugh Laurie (House), Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl/Date Night), Adam Brody (The O.C.), Sam Ronsen (Revolutionary Road), Allison Janney (The Help), Catherine Keener (Where the Wild Things Are) & Oliver Platt (Please Give)
