EXCLUSIVE: Keir Gilchrist (Atypical) and Lucy Hale (The Hating Game) will topline Daniel André’s debut feature, Mort in Sherman Oaks—an offbeat romance that will also star Francesca Eastwood (Old), Jim Gaffigan (Linoleum), Jay Pharoah (SNL), Rhys Coiro (Paradise City) and more.

The film written by André is about a down-and-out mortician living in near-future Los Angeles, where individuals can receive their LDC (life day count) by using a specific scientific method. When Mort (Gilchrist) finds out he has less than a year to live, his fiancé Nicole (Eastwood) leaves him and he’s forced to accept his fate. Mort joins a dating service that matches people by their death dates and meets Kate (Hale), all while being stalked by a deranged pimp named Simon (Coiro).

Monica Potter (Goliath), Clara McGregor (The Birthday Cake), Dustin Milligan (Schitt’s Creek), Leslie Stratton (Aileen Wuornos: American Boogeywoman), Dylan Flashner (The Card Counter), Lisa Yaro (Asking for It) and Isaac Singleton Jr. (The Mandalorian) round out the cast. André, Greg Lauritano, Lucas Jarach and Luke Daniels are producing, with Savoy Brummer, Robert Ogden Barnum, Jeff Rice, Rick Sasner, Stanley Preschutti, Ruben Islas, Robert Chan, Joel Michaely and Matt Shapira serving as executive producers. ICM Partners is handling sales.

Gilchrist starred as Sam Gardner on Netflix’s series Atypical and was previously a core cast member on Showtime’s United States of Tara. Notable film credits include The Stanford Prison Experiment, It Follows, It’s Kind of a Funny Story and The Rocker. The actor will next appear in HBO Max’s Candy Montgomery miniseries Love and Death led by Elizabeth Olsen, and Robert Kolodny’s boxing drama, Pep.

Hale played Aria Montgomery on Freeform’s Pretty Little Liars, also notably portraying the titular character on The CW’s Katy Keene. The actress has also been seen on series including Ragdoll and Riverdale, among others. Notable film credits include The Hating Game, Truth or Dare, The Unicorn, Scream 4 and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2. Hale will next be seen in the dramedy The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry with Kunal Nayyar, and the thriller The Gemini Lounge with Ashley Greene and Emile Hirsch.

The pic sees Hale and Hutchings reunite following last year’s The Hating Game for Hulu, which starred Hale and Austin Stowell as two executive assistants forced to work together when their publishing companies are merged. Hale has just finished shooting on The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry and is also exec producing Which Brings Me To You.

Based on the novel by Julianna Baggott and Steve Almond and adapted for the screen by Keith Bunin, the film is produced by BCDF Pictures, with Mister Smith launching global sales next week. Claude Dal Farra and Brian Keady are producing.

Dal Farra said: “We are excited to be working again with Peter and Lucy on what will be a fun and moving adaptation of Steve Almond and Julianna Baggott’s wonderful novel.”

We all have bad days—but there are some things you can do to set yourself up for a better one. This is something actress Lucy Hale knows, recently spilling on the morning routine she swears by to ensure her days get off to the best starts possible during an event with Almay in Los Angeles—and it comes with a little mind trick.

“What gets me going? Coffee obviously,” Hale says, laughing. “But something I do no matter what time I have to get up for work, wherever I am in the world, is wake up an hour earlier to actually have time—if I start manic, I’m going to have a really crappy day, rest assured. I’m going to be irritable; you’re not going to want to be around me. I always make sure I have a slow morning to do whatever it is I need to do.”

Another reason to implement Hale’s tip? Slow mornings (particularly with coffee) is also a big component in longevity, with the longest living humans in the world starting their day in just this way. Hale also revealed that she begins her mornings by writing down what she hopes to achieve—another thing tied to longevity. Ikigai is a Japanese concept that focuses on having a “why(aka your soul’s purpose)—what are you getting up for and what’s the emphasis of your day?

On top of Hale’s list of what she hopes to achieve, she also creates a gratitude list every a.m. “I start and write things I’m grateful for… it really does help me,” she says. Research suggests that a gratitude practice can aid in a reduced risk of depression and anxiety, and a boost in happiness and well-being. Gratitude has been linked to improved sleepless stresslower blood pressure, and improved immune function. (So it may be time to try a gratitude practice, even if you’re a skeptic.)

Ultimately, for Hale, it all comes down to self care in the morning. “Get that coffee cranking, puppy time, face mask if I have time, all those things,” she says.

When you have adult acne, it’s easy to feel alone, as if you’re the only one getting breakouts past the age of 18. However, anywhere between 12% and 22% of women ages 26 through 44 experience acne, and that number is increasing by the day (on the other hand, only around 3% of adult men experience the condition). In our Acne Diaries series, we’re asking influential women who happen to have acne about their relationship with their skin and the products they use to keep it happy. Next up: actor Lucy Hale.

You’d think acne would have been the least of Lucy Hale’s concerns when she showed up on set to film Pretty Little Liars. But it often wasn’t newfound fame, nailing her lines, or navigating on-set relationships that caused her the most stress; it was her constant breakouts.

“There were tears,” Hale tells Glamour. “There were days when I didn’t want to be in front of a camera. I remember vividly one day we were filming Pretty Little Liars—and the show’s called Pretty Little Liars, so they wanted us to look a certain way—we had to specially light my skin to reflect in a different way so you wouldn’t see my acne. I remember being just so embarrassed and mortified.

“When you’re growing up and you have bad skin, it’s just another added layer of getting comfortable with who you are,” she says of why her skin had such an effect on her sense of self. “I think the reason I’m so obsessed with skin care and beauty is because I struggled with my skin—you just want to crawl in a hole. It feels very isolating, and it can feel so heavy and so difficult. Looking back, I wish I could have had more grace and compassion with myself, but when you’re in it, it’s excruciating.”

Lucy Hale is expressing gratitude for Pretty Little Liars. ET’s Denny Directo spoke with the 32-year-old actress in support of her new flick, Borrego, and Hale was shocked to learn that the five-year anniversary of the PLL finale is right around the corner.

“Well, now I feel old, because I thought it was three years ago. But what has the last two years been, anyway?” Hale told ET, alluding to quarantine and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. “I’m confused. Wow. That’s really humbling.”

Hale starred as Aria Montgomery on the Freeform series, from its premiere in 2010 to its finale in June 2017. The experience, she said, “changed my life.”

“[I’m] grateful for it. Grateful for all it brought to me,” she said. “I now get to do all different types of roles because of that show. I’ll never forget that. I’ll always have gratitude for that.”

Back in September 2020, HBO Max announced that it’s given a direct-to-series order to a new PLL series. Titled Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin, the show, which will be helmed by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Lindsay Calhoon Bring, will take place in a new town, with new secrets and new Little Liars, but remain in the PLL universe. Chandler Kinney, Maia Reficco, Bailee Madison, Zaria and Malia Pyles are set to star.

“I’m excited for this new group of girls. I hope it does well. I really do,” Hale told ET. “I think people want me to be upset about it and I’m stoked for them. I want to watch. It’s exciting.”

As for the advice she’d offer the new Little Liars, Hale said, “Just enjoy it. Your life’s going to change. Just soak it all in. I wasn’t always that way. I was always thinking 10 steps ahead, so I would miss out on moments. Ride the wave. Stay around good people.”
