Phoebe Bridgers set to make acting debut in A24’s ‘I Saw the TV Glow’

It's been touted as the "coolest, wildest (and queerest) cast anyone has assembled in a minute."

Another day, another A24 casting. It’s been revealed that singer Phoebe Bridgers is set to make her cinematic debut in Jane Schoenbrun’s I Saw the TV Glow, a horror produced by A24 and Emma Stone’s production company, Fruit Tree.

Bridgers, 28, has only seen her stock rise in the music world since releasing her first solo album, Stranger in the Alps, was released in 2017 and was met with critical acclaim. Now, she’s dipping her toe into the acting world alongside a few other musicians, too, with Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst and Lindsey Jordan (Snail Mail) also set to feature. Actors Justice Smith, Brigette Lundy-Paine, Danielle Deadwyler, and Helena Howard round out the ensemble.

On announcing the stars of their new film yesterday, Shoenbrun tweeted: “Behold the cast of I Saw the TV Glow, which if I might humbly brag is the coolest, wildest (and queerest) cast anyone has assembled in a minute. I cannot wait for everyone to see the incredible work we all made together!!”

The film has already wrapped production although there is no confirmed release date as of yet. There aren’t too many details on the film other than a synopsis which leaves much to the imagination: “The film follows two teenage outcasts (played by Justice Smith and Brigette Lundy-Paine) who bond over their shared love of a scary television show, but the boundary between TV and reality begins to blur after it is mysteriously cancelled.”
