Watch Jonathan Groff in the First Trailer for David Sedaris' C.O.G.
Glee’s Jonathan Groff goes from singing to apple-picking in the premiere trailer for C.O.G., a short story by author David Sedaris and the first of his narratives to make its way to the big screen.
The autobiographical indie flick sees Groff as cocky grad student David who embarks on a journey to Oregon to find himself—and eventually finds himself working at an apple farm after his friend Jennifer bails on their summer trip to the Northwest. In a strange place full of people with opposing points of view and different lifestyles, David spends the film trying to mesh with his new habitat and connect with the folks around him. This coming-of-age story also sees David grappling with spiritually, originally dismissing religious ideals, but it looks as if he may become a C.O.G. by movie’s end.
Kyle Patrick Alvarez (Easier with Practice) wrote and directed the screenplay for the film, which also co-stars Denis O’Hare (American Horror Story), Troian Bellisario (Pretty Little Liars), Casey Wilson (Happy Endings) and Corey Stoll (House of Cards).
C.O.G. will be released in theaters on Sept. 20. Get a taste of the comedy in the trailer below.
