Getting 'Vicious' with Indie Spirit nominee Adam Scott

February 18, 2010 | 10:08 am

"Featuring a knockout performance by Adam Scott, a much-deserved Independent Spirit Award nominee for best male lead, 'The Vicious Kind' upends the heavily tread dysfunctional family drama in ways that are unique, surprising and memorable," notes the L.A. Times review. See the film's trailer here.

The best actor contender portrays a chain-smoking bully who sets out to protect his romantically naive younger brother from trouble he suspects might come from a new punk gal pal. Then the bully decides that the punk gal might just be the perfect rascal for himself. That's when things get really vicious. Check out my webcam chat with Scott, who also appears in "Party Down" on the Starz TV network.
