If there’s one person you don’t want on your bad side it’s the chick from “Gossip Girl.” Not Blake Lively, but there other one. Leighton Meester appears in a new thriller called The Roommate that has her going all Single White Female on poor Minka Kelly from “Friday Night Lights“. It’s intense, it’s insane, it’s B-movie fun. Check out the trailer…
As you can see, this film centers on a college student whose roommate turns out to be a complete and utter psycho. It’s interesting that they cast Meester and Kelly, because after watching this video you notice the actresses look a lot of like, which works for the film. Even though The Roommate echoes Single White Female: The College Years, there seems to be a different motivation.
Meester isn’t trying to replace Kelly as much as isolate her. Maybe she wants her to feel the loneliness she does? Or she wants her to belong to her because she’s all she has?
On a side note, once again Cam Gigandet and Aly Michalka are appearing in a film together about school. They both co-star in Easy A, which opens this weekend.
The Roommate hits theaters on February 4, 2011.
