Siegel-Magness taps thesp to play Meg Ryan's teen son
Ryan toplines the Smokewood Entertainment production as a woman who suffers a nervous breakdown after her cheating husband leaves her. Rogers will play Ryan’s 18-year-old son Henry, a good-hearted stoner who has flunked out of high school and is determined to comfort her with the help of his estranged older brother (Zach Gilford, “Friday Night Lights”) and live-in girlfriend (Amanda Crew, “Sex Drive”).
Karen McCullah (“The Ugly Truth”) wrote the script, which is based on April Stevens’ novel “Angel, Angel.” Scribe will also produce with Bobbi Sue Luther and Gary Magness, while Andrew Sugerman and Seth Jaret will exec produce.
Rogers, who stars in the upcoming genre pic “1313: Haunted Frat,” will soon be seen alongside “Glee” thesp Chris Colfer in the indie comedy “Struck By Lightning.” He’s repped by APA, Dino May Management and attorney Rick Genow.
