Posted, 3rd November 2011: From the catwalk to the silver screen Marc Jacobs is taking the step into film making by being cast in a new movie.

At the WSJ Magazine Innovator of the Year Awards the designer revealed the exciting news to a reporter.

"I got cast in a role in a movie. They're filming next week and I'm excited. I get to play a character that's not myself at all," he said.
