'Naked' and Sacred

Some fun David Sedaris news for you: Popnography reports that one of the writer's stories will be adapted for the big screen for the first time ever. Sedaris has long refused to have anything to do with the big screen because he wanted to protect his (often-written-about) family. But when director Kyle Patrick Alvarez approached him about turning the story of his experiences as an apple picker in Oregon -- chronicled in the essay "C.O.G." in the bestselling "Naked" -- into a film, the funnyman was on board. (Sedaris' family isn't mentioned.) "C.O.G." is slated to premiere at the 2013 Sundance Dramatic Competition and will star two openly gay actors, Denis O'Hare and Jonathan Groff, as well as sexy Corey Stoll, whose mustache dazzled audiences as Ernest Hemingway in "Midnight in Paris."
