Leighton Meester is the kind of girl who eats chocolate ice cream.
After six years of watching her fit into the finest of couture gowns on television's "Gossip Girl," we wouldn't have believed it ourselves if we hadn't witnessed it just before our interview. But, then again, Meester is on the cusp of a whole new chapter in her career, and that's exactly when surprises should be the norm, whether they be food choices or projects.
In her new comedy, "The Oranges," out in limited release on Friday, Meester is in great company – including Hugh Laurie, Allison Janney, Oliver Platt and Adam Brody – as Nina, a lost 20-something who returns home for Thanksgiving and hooks up with her father's best friend (Laurie). She's not conniving or devilish about it like we've seen her be on "Gossip Girl" and in "That's My Boy" and "The Roommate." In fact, she even makes you root for her unlikely romance as you laugh and even question the "rules" of relationships at any age.

Illicit affairs continue to lead to unexpected self-discovery in "The Oranges," the dark comedy in which a middle-aged man's (Hugh Laurie) tryst with his best friend's 24-year-old daughter (Leighton Meester) inadvertently prompts everyone affected by this scandal to step outside the realms of their white picket fences and take a long, hard look at themselves.

Hugh Laurie has certainly mastered the role of pill-popping doctor… but classics-loving mentor? That's one part he has yet to play.
Because director Andrew Adamson has tapped the "House" star to play the title character in "Mr. Pip," an adaptation of best-selling novel by Lloyd Jones, Deadline reports.
Laurie will play Mr. Watts, the last white man left on the war-torn island of Bougainville, Papua New Guinea, who reopens a school and reads his favorite novel, "Great Expectations," to the students, thereby inspiring a gifted 14-year-old name Matilda. Get More »
