American actress and fashion icon Chloë Sevigny is one of Hollywood's boldest and most gifted actors. Known for her many indie film roles, Sevigny has garnered much critical acclaim since her 1995 debut, most recently a Golden Globe for her performance on HBO's Big Love. Sevigny is also widely revered for her sense of style, and recently launched her fourth collection for the hip NY label Opening Ceremony.

Ms. Sevigny, in a white eyelet dress and flats, read a letter Ms. Alyokhina wrote long before the trial began, describing being cold and tired in detention. “It seems like it really won’t get any worse,” Ms. Sevigny-as-Ms. Alyokhina said, with feeling. Ms. Myles read a letter the group wrote to Prime Minister Dmitri A. Medvedev.
“There’s a Joan of Arc-type resonance,” she said afterward, “that they’re standing up to patriarchy. It’s poetry in and of itself.”

For those of you who don’t know, “the Pussy Riot trial” refers to the ongoing trial in Russia against three members of the feminist punk band Pussy Riot, who could face up to seven years in prison for an impromptu political protest they staged at the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow in February. For more information, check out the band’s Wikipedia-page.
Fretts on Film recently caught up with Chloë Sevigny to talk about some of her most recent films. Here’s some more information on Chloë’s involvement in the upcoming Linda Lovelace biopic Lovelace, M. Blash’s The Wait, which has been “in post-production” since August 2011, and James Franco’s NYU student film Black Dog, Red Dog, straight from the source. Kicking things off with…
… Lovelace, in which Chloë appears opposite her Big Love co-star Amanda Seyfried, who plays the title role:
“I’m probably in a minute and a half of the movie,” Sevigny told me. “It’s a cameo. It’s at the very beginning of the movie, and I play a feminist journalist interviewing her about the provocative nature of her work. I love Amanda, and they have a lot of great people doing cameos.”
“The Wait is still pending distribution,” Sevigny says. “It’s a great movie. I love it. I hope somebody picks it up. But I loved his last movie [Lying from 2006, in which Chloë also appears], too. They’re not for everyone.”
And finally, Black Dog, Red Dog:
“It’s not a film. It’s a student film. I do student films now,” she says, with a laugh. “I live in New York, and I want to give back to the community a little bit.”
Will it get a theatrical release, like Franco’s master’s thesis, the Hart Crane biopic The Broken Tower? “God, I have no idea. I doubt it. Maybe. I have no idea what they do with these films,” says Sevigny, who plays one of the main characters’ girlfriends. “If [Broken Tower] got released with barely a blip, then I don’t have much hope for Red Dog, Black Dog or Black Dog, Red Dog.”

Sitting on Chloë Sevigny’s glass-topped kitchen table is a script for Black Dog, Red Dog, a feature film directed by James Franco and eleven of his NYU students. She shot it for free. “I’m out of work right now,” she says, laughing. “I thought it would be good to help some young filmmakers and busy myself so I don’t go crazy and obsess over buying a cat.”
[...] On breaks from Big Love, Sevigny would buy a lamp here and a mirror there from David Cafiero, who runs the tiny by-appointment antiques store Cafiero Select in Cooper Square, and who helped decorate her brother Paul’s club, the Beatrice Inn. “We’re both from New England,” says Sevigny. “He’s really inspired by the sea, and I grew up on the water. I was like, ‘Ahhh. I wish I could just live in his store!’”
[...] As Sevigny shows me around, she realizes that she had quite a bit of decorating help from an ex-boyfriend, musician Matt McAuley (A.R.E. Weapons, TV Baby), whom she dated for eight years and whose gifts are everywhere. The copper teakettle. A pitcher in a Tiffany toile pattern. A framed postcard of Jesus. “When he moved out, he took all the pictures of us out of the frames and put that one in,” she says. “I left it there. It’s kind of weird, right? But it’s beautiful.”
The article also confirms Chloë’s appearance in James Franco’s Black Dog, Red Dog. Read it in full on NYMag.com; a couple of outtakes from the accompanying photoshoot in our gallery.

Furthermore, The Mercury Report is reporting Tim Blake Nelson, who stared in Franco’s Child Of God, will also be part of the film.
Black Dog, Red Dog is based on poet Stephen Dobyns’ book that focuses on his life from the 1950′s to 1980′s. The film will be feature length though it will be made up of a series of short films directed by Franco’s students.
