Indie is Moore's first film role
Alecia Moore, the recording artist better known as Pink, has joined the cast of Stuart Blumberg’s directorial debut “Thanks for Sharing” along with “Almost Famous” star Patrick Fugit.Mark Ruffalo, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tim Robbins, Joely Richardson and Josh Gad lead the ensemble pic, a dramedy that centers on a group of recovering sex addicts. Moore will play Dede, a kindred spirit who bonds with Gad’s sex addict character, while Fugit’s role remains under wraps. William Migliore and David Koplan are producing for Class 5 Films, where Blumberg (“The Kids Are All Right”) is a partner, while Leslie Urdang, Dean Vanech and Miranda de Pencier are producing for Olympus Pictures, which is financing the film. Edward Norton serves as exec producer on the pic, which began shooting late last month in Gotham. Voltage is handling pic’s foreign sales, while WME’s Graham Taylor and UTA’s Rena Ronson are co-repping its domestic sales. Moore, a three-time Grammy winner who previously starred in the direct-to-DVD horror pic “Catacombs,” will make her bigscreen debut in “Thanks for Sharing.” “Alecia could not be a more ideal fit for this role,” said Blumberg. “She carries with her just the right combination of heart and edginess for the part of Dede, and we’re incredibly excited to share her acting talent with audiences.” Fugit, who will next be seen in Cameron Crowe’s “We Bought a Zoo,” will star opposite Wendell Pierce in the indie “B.B. King and I.” He’s repped by Gersh and Levin/Brown Management.
