Melora Hardin Joins Thriller ‘Cruel Hearts’

Melora Hardin has joined the cast of thriller “Cruel Hearts” opposite Eddie Jemison, Patrick Day, Alev Aydin and Bonnie Root.

Production companies are Conspicuous Pictures and Verax Films in association with Dark Ash Films. The movie is produced by Joe Pezzula and Jonathan Brown. The executive producers are Leslie Osborne, Mark Relyea, Robert Hornak and Bill Eikost.

“Cruel Hearts” is currently shooting in the Los Angeles area.

Paul Osborne is directing from his own script, in which a young man discovers the woman he’s been sleeping with is married to a notorious crime boss and decides to tell him upfront about the transgression and beg for forgiveness. The ploy works, and the two men form an unstable friendship.

Aydin will portray the young man and Day is playing the crime boss. Aydin starred in 2013’s “Lonely Boy.”

Hardin is a regular on Amazon Studio’s “Transparent” as Tammy Cashman and was one of the original cast members of the U.S. version of “The Office.” Her film credits include “The Butterfly Effect,” “17 Again,” “27 Dresses,” Ryan Reynolds’ “Self/Less” and “Golden Vanity.”

Conspicuous Pictures previously teamed with Osborne on the 2013 thriller “Favor,” which starred Day and Blayne Weaver.

Hardin’s deal was negotiated by Samantha Crisp of the Kohner Agency and Maryellen Mulcahy at Framework Entertainment.
