No, they’re not triplets…but the acting bug does run in the Olsen family. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s little sister, Elizabeth Olsen (previously known as Lizzie from their childhood videos), is all grown up and hitting the big screen!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Elizabeth will star in Martha Marcy May Marlene, an indie film that will co-star Hugh Dancy. Olsen will play a young woman who breaks free from a cult and lives with her older sister, played by Sarah Paulson. Dancy will play Paulson’s husband. The drama is set to be released in 2012.
Elizabeth Olsen can also be seen in Peace, Love & Misunderstanding, a comedic drama about a lawyer that takes her teenage children to Woodstock to meet their hippie grandmother. This film is set to release in 2011, and co-stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Catherine Keener, Chace Crawford, and Jane Fonda.
Don’t the Olsen twins also have a brother? I wonder what he’ll star in!
