RJ Cyler makes his acting debut in “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl,” but he’s getting noticed — and recognized.

Tucked away with his co-stars in a Downtown hotel suite Monday, he said people are starting to ask, “Hey, you in the movie? Is it the one with the dying girl and the dude from ‘Project X’? Oh, you the black dude.”

“Yeah,” he responds to each question, imbuing the word with coolness and comedic timing that should serve him well down the road.

“Bates Motel” and “Ouija” actress Olivia Cooke is Rachel, a teen diagnosed with leukemia, and Thomas Mann from the epic party movie “Project X” is Greg, the “me” of the title who is ordered by his mom to befriend his ailing classmate. Alfonso Gomez-Rejon directed the film, written by former Pittsburgher Jesse Andrews and based on his novel.

It will open in Pittsburgh June 26, five months almost to the day after premiering at the Sundance Film Festival and capturing two big awards. It has been a year since the trio came to town to shoot the movie in which Pittsburgh plays itself; they remember visiting the Three Rivers Arts Festival, catching the Arctic Monkeys at Stage AE and eating at Meat & Potatoes, Butcher and the Rye and Cure.

VARIETY – A&E has been handed “Bates Motel” a two-season renewal, while cancelling freshman thriller “The Returned,” Variety has learned.

“Bates Motel” will be coming back with Season 4 and Season 5. Both 10-episode seasons will air in 2016 with production beginning later this year.

“The vision of our incredible creative team has exposed the steady breakdown of the relationship between Norman and Norma Bates,” said Rob Sharenow, exec vice president and general manager of A&E and Lifetime. “We are thrilled to bring fans two more seasons to witness the next stages of Norman’s transformation into the most notorious psychopath in cinematic history.”

The critically-acclaimed series is a contemporary prequel to the film “Psycho” and shows how Norman Bates (played by Freddie Highmore) unravels through his teenage years. Vera Farmiga plays his mother, Norma Bates.

Despite falling off in its third season, “Bates,” hailing from Universal Television, Carlton Cuse Productions and Kerry Ehrin Productions, ranks among the top-rated ad-supported cable series. It averaged about a 1.3 rating in adults 18-49 and three million viewers overall, according to Nielsen’s “live+3″ estimates.

Though A&E has not made a decision about the series’ end, co-creator Kerry Ehrin, who exec produces with Carlton Cuse, has always envisioned “Bates” running no longer than five seasons, telling Variety, “from the end of the first season, Carlton and I both had the exact same instinct of five seasons.” She said she has an endgame in mind, adding, “Emotionally, yes, a very specific one. I will say it’s beautiful.”

ELLE CANADAWe loved what the star of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl has to say about social media and Hollywood’s crazy double standards.

The basic premise of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (a teenage misfit ends up befriending a girl just diagnosed with cancer in their final year of high school) doesn’t begin to do justice to this surprising, uplifting film. To call it “quirky” also feels a little weak, because this film, while wonderfully offbeat and laugh-out-loud hilarious, is also a genuinely wise, wisely genuine piece of cinema that is anything but twee, and pretty much the opposite of a film like, say, A Walk to Remember, or that movie about faults and stars that shall not be named. No spoilers, but let’s just say there’s a reason this little indie was the darling of Sundance 2015.

One of the stand-out lights of the movie is 21 year-old Olivia Cooke, the British actress Bates Motel fans will recognise from her role as Norman’s pal Emma, and horror fans will know from the string of scary movies she’s been in (Ouija, The Quiet Ones). ELLE recently had a chance to chat with the direct, refreshing Cooke about “cancer movies”, teenage friendships, and why you’ll never catch her on Instagram.

I walked out of the theatre after seeing Me and Earl and the Dying Girl in a really great mood, which doesn’t usually happen after a movie about a teen with cancer.

OC: It’s more a celebration of life, and it’s so humorous. I found the film really reassuring – like, don’t bother fearing the inevitable. You’ll leave all the pieces behind and you won’t be forgotten.

Did making the film make you think a lot about your own mortality?

OC: Definitely. It’s something I was actually struggling with before the film. I was 18 when I moved to a totally different country, and I was panicking all the time, like “What’s happening to my mom? Is she okay? What if something happens to her and I can’t get there on time? Or what if something happens to me?” I was having these daydreams about what would happen at my own funeral, and just those sort of weird things you sometimes think when you’re feeling really selfish and on a downer. Making this film just made me feel more at ease about just living life, and celebrating life – we’re so lucky to be here, you know? And it sounds so cliché and like “grateful! blessed!”, but this film taught me that there’s just so much time wasted feeling sorry for yourself.

Something I found so powerful about this movie was that there’s a point in which your character gets really mad about having cancer

OC: She is fucking pissed at what is happening to her! She’s so young, she’s got so much to experience and it fucking sucks. She loses her hair, she feels so ugly, and the way people are treating her is fucking awful. I didn’t want to play a character with an illness as a tragic victim.

A lovely twist in the movie is that it starts with the male character, Greg, thinking his mission is to “cheer up the girl with cancer”, and yet in the end, it’s your character Rachel who’s been working on Greg all along.

OC: Greg is her little project – she wants him to realize his own self-worth, and in return, he really does provide some comic relief in her life. It’s a movie of self-discovery, really. Greg still has a long way to go, but she opens him up and lets him appreciate relationships more, which he’s never done because he keeps everyone at arms length.

This trio of young actors may be familiar from other projects, from Project X to Bates Motel, but they became overnight Sundance celebrities with Me, Earl & The Dying Girl in January 2015. Now the movie is coming out and the trio sat down to talk with David Poland about the work, the process of promoting the movie, finding roles, and more.
