'Sassy Pants' Trailer: Haley Joel Osment, Ashley Rickards Star
The trailer for newcomer Coley Sohn's "Sassy Pants," starring "Awkward" actress Ashley Rickards as a young woman on the job hunt rather than the college hunt, has hit the web.
The coming of age tale features the trials and tribulations that come with trying to make it in the real world while dealing with a difficult world at home. Rickard has to deal with a helicopter mother played by "Breaking Bad's" Anna Gunn who tries to foil her plans; and a gay father ("Napoleon Dynamite's" Deidrich Bader) dating a much younger man, played by "The Sixth Sense" star Haley Joel Osment.
Osment has been out of the spotlight for years, but that doesn't mean he wasn't busy. "Going back to elementary school and high school, I put so much work into having a regular education that it was a huge priority for me in finishing that," he tells the Huffington Post. Still, he's not blind as to why an actor would choose to ditch school for the big screen. "But I get it, in Hollywood there are a lot of advantages of leaving high school and getting yourself out there since you are only as good as your last film."
He has largely spent his time outside of school providing voices for video games and cartoons; he made his first film appearance since 2007 in last year's "Montana Amazon," though that did see much of a theatrical release.
