BISHOP ALLEN’S Justin Rice Co-Stars In New Indie film To Premiere At SXSW Film Festival

When BISHOP ALLEN’S Justin Rice and Christian Rudder aren’t pumping out pop gems like the band’s latest album Grrr…, the two moonlight as (modestly great) actors in some wonderful indie films. Most recently, Justin co-stars in “Alexander The Last,” the latest film from director Joe Swanberg (Hannah Takes the Stairs).

“Alexander The Last” was produced by Noah Baumbach and centers on the ups and downs of a young marriage. Read a great article on Swanberg and the film from Indie Wire HERE.

IFC Films and the SXSW Film Festival will premiere the film on Saturday, March 14.

Visit the film’s Web site HERE and check out the trailer for “Alexander The Last” below.
