Justin Long / John Krasinski

Here we have word on two different indie films with two great lead actors and a promising supporting cast in each of them. First up, Deadline has word that Justin Long will star in Lumpy, the story of a bride and groom who find out their life-of-the-party best man Lumpy may not exactly be who they thought after he dies at the end of the evening and the couple must arrange the funeral instead of going on their honeymoon. Ted Koland (who also wrote the script) will make his directorial debut with a cast that also includes Jess Weixler (Teeth), Tyler Labine ("Reaper") and Addison Timlin ("Californication"). More below!

Meanwhile, The Wrap reports John Krasinski ("The Office") will lead another indie flick called Nobody Walks. The actor will be joined by Rosemarie DeWitt ("United States of Tara") and Olivia Thirlby (Juno) in the story of a young artist who is invited into a Los Angeles family's home and disrupts the family's life. Krasinski did an amazing job in his last indie venture Away We Go, and his charm even helps generic romantic comedies like It's Complicated, and hopefully the forthcoming Something Borrowed. And this flick is also helped by a script co-written by Lena Dunham (Tiny Furniture) and will be directed by Ry Russo-Young (You Won't Miss Me). Either of these projects sound good?
