WATCH Marc Jacobs' Acting Debut In The Disconnect Trailer

Marc Jacobs is a man of many talents. Not content with designing collections for his own label as well as Louis Vuitton and becoming Creative Director for Diet Coke, news reached us in 2011 that the US designer wants to show off his acting chops. Today, the fruits of his labour have been revealed!

WATCH Marc Jacobs' Acting Debut In The Disconnect Trailer

Marc's movie debut when the trailer for Disconnect landed earlier today. The 2-minute preview features Jason Bateman putting his comedy skills aside and sporting a beard, Andrea Riseborough as a hard-nosed reporter investigating an adult-only site and Alexander Skarsgård getting (even more) intense as a husband whose online secrets are exposed. So far, so thrilling. But wait! Is that…? Could it be…? Yep, that dodgy-looking character around the 1:50 mark is our Marc.

The designer plays a menacing a producer of online underage porn who also acts as a surrogate parent to the wayward teens he takes in. Yep, Devil Wears Prada this ain't. And although the trailer only features a blink-and-you'll-miss-it appearance, Mr Jacobs does deliver a killer last line: 'Trust me, no one else.' Ooh, MJ!

The gritty film required Marc to ditch the Birkin handbags and top-notch garb for *GASP* acid wash jeans. 'When they had the fittings for the movie, when they saw me, my design team was all in hysterics,' he explained to Entertainment Weekly. '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. So they just couldn’t stop laughing. Nobody would have recognised me at the Dunkin’ Donuts in Yonkers in my acid washed jean jacket with a hoodie attached and my dad jeans.' HA, this we have to see.

Watch MJ in action below...

    All-new 2015 Subaru Outback reestablishes higher ground

    Much of Subaru’s modern day success in America can be attributed to one car: the Outback. Born in 1994 as a response to the growing popularity of SUVs, the Outback established a winning formula of combining a high-riding suspension, butch body cladding and big round fog lights to its comfortable, no-nonsense Legacy wagon. It is the kind of unique product that only a quirky company like Subaru could build, and was one that kept Subaru from slipping into ubiquity even as traditional SUVs and crossovers have taken over the world.

    Custom faux-tique electric tram aims to replace New York's horses over the neigh-sayers

    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.
