A bunch of blogs are trying to give away copies of the soundtrack to the indie film Smart People starring Juno‘s Ellen Page, Sideways‘ Thomas Haden Church, Sex And The City‘s Sarah Jessica Parker and Enemymine‘s Dennis Quaid. Sounds like a quirky sleeper, but what’s that on the soundtrack? Why, Nuno Bettencourt! Lots and lots of Nuno Bettencourt!
Bettencourt wrote the strummy acoustic original music to the upcoming Miramax comedy/Sundance hit, “Smart People” (which stars Ellen Page, Sarah Jessica Parker and Thomas Haden Church as a random group of friends and family that come to the aid of Dennis Quaid – a recently widowed professor dealing with the after-effects of a concussion).
The digital-only soundtrack release comes out April 11 via Miramax/Hollywood records and features, Bettencourt’s original tunes (with vocals too), newly-reformed ’90s Australian hard-rock band Baby Animals (fronted by his wife Suze DeMarchi), and former Extreme bassist Paul Mangone.
A reunited Baby Animals! And we all Nuno know can bring the strummy acoustic goodness.
