EXCLUSIVE: Lucy Freyer has joined the cast of Brit McAdams’ To paint, with Owen Wilson, Michaela Watkins, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Ciara Renée, Lusia Strus and Stephen Root.
The comedic feature film centers around Carl Nargle (Wilson), who hosted Vermont’s # 1 painting exhibition for nearly three decades.

In the film, currently in production, Freyer plays Jenna, an employee of Carl’s studio, who is also his latest girlfriend. Like the women before her, she is captivated by Carl’s gentle charm, but begins to realize that she does things she doesn’t believe in just to earn his affection.
