THE SPECTACULAR NOW
At just 23, BRIE LARSON (Cassidy) has already built an impressive career as one of the more
versatile young actresses working today as she has moved effortlessly from one genre to another with every
project she takes on. Brie has two films at this year's Sundance Film Festival. In addition to THE
SPECTACULAR NOW, she also co-stars in Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut, DON JON'S
ADDICTION, playing his cynical/realist younger sister.
She was recently seen in the hugely successful film, 21 JUMP STREET as the love interest to
Jonah Hill, and received rave reviews for her supporting role in the Oren Moverman film RAMPART,
playing the incorrigible, defiant daughter of Woody Harrelson, a dirty cop in the Los Angeles' Rampart
Brie garnered substantial acclaim for her portrayal of Kate, Toni Collette's sarcastic and rebellious
daughter, in Showtime's breakout drama "United States of Tara," which was created by Academy Award-
winning writer Diablo Cody and based on an original idea by Steven Spielberg.
Other notable credits include Edgar Wright's SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD, where she
played the rock star ex-girlfriend of Michael Cera, and Noah Baumbach's GREENBERG as a young
temptress flirting with Ben Stiller. She has appeared on stage at the prestigious Williamstown Theater
Festival in the role of "Emily" in "Our Town," and recurred on the F/X cult favorite series, "The League" as
an overly amorous Au Pair.
In addition to acting, Brie is a writer and director. Her short film, THE ARM, won the prize for
Best Comedic Storytelling at last year's Sundance Film Festival. A native of Sacramento, Brie started
studying drama at the early age of 6, as the youngest student ever to attend the American Conservatory
Theater in San Francisco.
