Seeing double? Ed Norton plays identical twins in Leaves of Grass

One of the Special Presentations announced at TIFF is the new Edward Norton comedy Leaves of Grass where he plays an identical twins (one a Philosophy professor, the other a small-town pot grower). If anybody can pull this off, it’d be Norton. The film is produced and directed by Tim Blake Nelson, last seen in the last year hit The Incredible Hulk.

The plot according to IMDB: An Ivy League professor is lured back to his Oklahoma hometown, where his twin brother, a small-time pot grower, has concocted a scheme to take down a local drug lord. Sounds hilarious and Nelson being a comic actor himself, this could be great.

The rest of the cast looks pretty decent: Richard Dreyfuss, Susan Sarandon, Keri Russell and my favorite underrated actress of the moment, Melanie Lynskey (Charlie Sheen’s stalker neighbor in Two-and-a-Half Men).

I’ll definitely keep an eye on this one.
