Ben Gibbard to Make Film Debut

Death Cab for Cutie frontman diversifies his indie hustle.

Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard is preparing to brave the perilous path traveling from musician to actor.

The singer will be joined onscreen alongside the likes of Saturday Night Live’s Will Forte, That 70’s Show’s Mila Kunis, Snakes on a Plane’s Bobby Cannavale, and The Office’s Rashida Jones. No release date for Brief Interviews with Hideous Men has been announced.
