News__ Marc Jacobs’ Acting Debut

| By

Is that outfit Marc by Marc Jacobs, Marc Jacobs?

Marc Jacobs has left the fashion world if only for a moment to become a an online child pornography dealer…in a movie about the perils of a disconnected, wired world aptly titled Disconnect. Moviegoers don't have to wait long to see the chiseled jaw of the American fashion designer as he appears in scene one with a flippant "Hey. Where you been?"

The movie itself looks pretty cool and also includes the (less stylish) stars Jason Bateman and Alexander Skarsgård all wrapped up in their own technologically driven world. In a post Jacobs-hosted MoMA screening Q&A session with Arianna Huffington, Jacobs said he could relate to the loneliness that led to the characters' use of the internet, claiming he was shaking after his first viewing. He was also clear to state that the movie didn't equal a career shift claiming he was "there for the coffee" because obviously the affluent designer can't afford his own.

Watch the trailer for Disconnect below or catch the whole thing in theaters in April.
