In one fell swoop, Sondre Lerche has added a soundtrack and movie cameo to his resume. The 25-year-old Norwegian singer-songwriter was commissioned to write original music for the new movie 'Dan in Real Life,' starring 'The Office' star Steve Carell. The film's director, Peter Hedges, hand-selected Lerche to make the music for the movie as memorable as Cat Stevens did for 'Harold and Maude' and Simon and Garfunkel did for 'Mrs. Robinson.'
In addition to penning the music, Lerche also appears at the end of the movie performing his song, 'Modern Nature.' "It's great to not only have made all the music for the film but also to be featured in the background at the end," he tells Cinematical in an interview about the experience. "That was my big Hollywood moment." Read the full interview.
