Marc Jacobs to make film debut as a 'porn baron' in Disconnect


Marc Jacobs is set to make his movie debut as he takes on a rather racy role in new film Disconnect.

Adding another talent to his endless CV, the American designer will play the role of a sleazy porn baron in the drama-thriller.

We're guessing he got a taste for acting after his stint as Diet Coke's shirtless hunt earlier this year. Although the role's real test comes with his character's questionable wardrobe. Uh oh.

Talking to Entertainment Weekly about his 'bad jeans', Marc Jacobs said, "Nobody would have recognised me at the Dunkin' Donuts in Yonkers…I had these really tacky suburban disco shirts with crucifixes embroidered on them, and the worst fitting dad jeans – I never wear jeans anyway – but these were just bad and acid washed, with flannel zip jackets sewn to the side. And they put big silver rings on my fingers and earrings."

But it seems his acting career has come to an abrupt end already, as he added, "I enjoyed parts of doing it, but you know, it's not ever been my dream to act or anything like that. It's probably the last time I'll ever do it."

Jason Bateman, Alexander Skarsgard and Paula Patton also star in the new film. Watch the trailer for Disconnect below…

    For the record, it's the year 2014. I mention that in case someone reading this story about a push to replace horses with motorized carriages thinks they've stumbled onto some archival piece by accident. It's been more than 100 years since the first vehicles began to trundle around Manhattan, but the last remaining vestiges of horse-powered transport in the city could be nigh — if the backers of a massive electric wagon get their way.

    2015 Acura TLX blends two sedans into one alphabet soup

    Nearly three decades have passed since Honda gave us the car we didn’t know we wanted: a fancified Accord called the Legend, which Honda sold under a newly created luxury brand called Acura. Acura, along with the Lexus and Infiniti brands that followed, proceeded to turn the luxury market on its nose. But since then, everyone from Hyundai to Bentley has stepped up its luxury game while Acura got a bit lost in ubiquity with a cadre of similar-looking products, all with confusing alphabet soup names like ILX, TSX, TL and RLX.

    By Narae Kim JINDO South Korea (Reuters) - More than 280 people, many of them students from the same high school, were missing after a ferry capsized off South Korea on Wednesday, in what could be the country's biggest maritime disaster in over 20 years. It was not immediately clear why the Sewol ferry listed heavily on to its side and capsized in apparently calm conditions off South Korea's southwest coast, but some survivors spoke of a loud noise prior to the disaster.
