Haley Joel Osment Goes Indie in Kevin Smith's 'Tusk' & 'Me Him Her'

October 18, 2013

Haley Joel Osment

Last year we featured the resurgence of child star Haley Joel Osment all grown up, playing a man's boyfriend in the indie Sassy Pants, and now Deadline reports the 25-year-old actor is continuing his comeback in the indie world with two more roles that should get him back in the spotlight. First, Osment is joining Kevin Smith's bizarre horror film Tusk. The story follows a podcast host (Justin Long) who goes missing in the backwoods of Canada, where he's forced to dress up and act like a walrus for a twisted man's (Michael Parks) companionship. Osment will play his best friend who goes on a search to find him along with his girlfriend (Genesis Rodriguez). Production begins next month in North Carolina. But that's not all.

Osment will also star in Me Him Her, the new film from Chronicle writer Max Landis. There are no details on the story at this time, but the cast includes an interesting array of talent like Scott Bakula, Alia Shawkat and Geena Davis. Since Landis is quite the hot writer right now, this should be a good role for him to continue to get back in the spotlight. Osment will also be seen in the IFC miniseries "Spoils of Babylon," a Funny or Die production which premieres in January. The actor is certainly taking all the right steps to becoming a star again, but he's got awhile before he catches up with Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

His face looks the same but his body around it doesn't.
