As The Descendants closed the New York Film Festival’s Closing Gala, Matthew attended the red carpet with Heather. They attended the afterparty where Barbara Chai, a writer for WallStreet Journal’s blog, Speakeasy reported the following:
Matthew Lillard, who plays Clooney’s nemesis in the film, was ebullient in discussing his just-completed directorial debut, a film called “Fat Kid Rules the World,” scored by Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready — by our count, he gave Speakeasy three hugs.
He’s a hugger! Great to see him talking about Fat Kid Rules The World as well. If you’re just finding out about it now, please visit the facebook page where you can find out all about it. We’re hoping that author, K.L Going will be seeing a cut of the film this week before it is submitted to Sundance!
