90210's Jessica Stroup Braves One Hell of a Homecoming

Jessica Stroup, Homecoming

Set in the outskirts of a frigid Pittsburgh, the new big-screen thriller Homecoming finds Matt Long (Jack & Bobby) playing Michael, a former high school football hero returning to town with his college girlfriend Elizabeth (90210's Jessica Stroup) in tow. Thing is, local gal Shelby (The O.C. alumna Mischa Barton) fancies herself still attached to Mike — and she is by no means ready to let go, even if it means making like Kathy Bates to cut the competition off at the knees — somewhat figuratively. Stroup shared a look at the making of the frightful film, as well as gave a peek at what's ahead for 90210's Silver.

TVGuide.com: Did you know what you were getting into with this film, or not until you got 20 or so pages into the script?
Jessica Stroup: For sure I did. I had seen Misery with Kathy Bates, and this is kind of an updated version of that. I've done some horror movies in the past [including Prom Night and The Hills Have Eyes II], but this is different. It's more of a psychological thriller. 

News: Mischa Barton skips movie premiere because of medical issue

TVGuide.com: There's a particularly creepy moment when Shelby tells Elizabeth, "I'm only trying to help you" — and we're worried she actually believes that.
Stroup: It's so interesting to me to play "crazy." There's such a fine line between ... read more

As Max enlists an aspiring screenwriter (played by 7th Heaven's David Gallagher) to tell his tale, "Drama ensues, and there's a girl ... read more
