Little Dog Makes It Big: It reads like a classic “rags to riches” tale: Down on his luck, he finds himself moved from shelter-to-shelter, living off random acts of kindness from strangers. Then, through a brilliant stroke of luck, he’s acting in a movie with A-list celebrities.
But this little guy was never a wannabe actor, he’s a little 5-year-old terrier mix called Aleister who was found in a California shelter in 2008. He’s about to make his big break co-starring alongside Steve Carell and Keira Knightly in the doomsday-comedy movie “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World” that premiers on Friday, June 22.
“When I saw Aleister and his wonderful scrappy snaggletooth and wiry coat, I loved him and felt, ‘Here’s our hero dog,’” said writer/director Lorene Scafaria. via Mother Nature Network
