Could Marc be clutching an Oscar next?

Just last week, we learned that designer Marc Jacobs was set to expand his cultural reach from the fashion scene to the big screen. And now, thanks to a juicy tidbit from our friends over at Fashionista, we've learned that Marc's set to make his acting debut in an independent film called Disconnect. The Henry Alex Rubin-directed drama doesn't yet have a very extensive IMDB page—all we know for the moment is that it revolves around "a group of people searching for human connections in today's wired world"—but hey, at least it's got relevant subject matter.

What's really exciting about this announcement, though, is that Marc's signed on to star alongside True Blood hunk Alexander Skarsgard and Arrested Development funnyman Jason Bateman—two decidedly awesome dudes. No word on the role Marc will be playing, but we're willing to bet his costume doesn't include a kilt.
