JACK OSBOURNE To Make Feature Acting Debut

August 16, 2003

MTV reality star Jack Osbourne will make his feature acting debut in the Olsen twins' comedy vehicle "New York Minute", which is currently shooting in Toronto, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The son of former BLACK SABBATH singer Ozzy Osbourne will play the young manager of a band featuring Mary-Kate Olsen's character, a 17-year-old punk-rock rebel named Roxy. Ashley Olsen will play her twin sister, Jane, an overachiever looking to qualify for a prestigious college scholarship.

In the tradition of "Ferris Bueller's Day Off", the Warner Bros. feature follows a day in the lives of the duo, who find themselves caught in various mix-ups. Dennie Gordon ("What A Girl Wants") is directing.

"Jack's outrageous," Mary-Kate Olsen said. "Perfect for the role."

The ensemble cast also includes Eugene Levy, Andrea Martin, Darrell Hammond, Andy Richter, and "Loveline" co-host Dr. Drew Pinsky, also making his feature debut as the girls' father.
