Haley Joel Osment is Teaching ‘Sex Ed’

The student is now a teacher.

With his first major Hollywood appearance back in 1994, in a scene where he was waiting for his school bus, Haley Joel Osment was Forrest Junior, Tom Hank’s son in “Forrest Gump”. He was just five. And best known for his role as the freaky “I see dead people” kid in M. Night Shyamalan’s 1999 thriller “The Sixth Sense”, Osment is returning to the big screen … awkwardly that is.

In “Sex Ed”, the 27-year-old plays a guy named Eddie who lands his first teaching gig at an inner-city middle school. He soon finds that his highly pubescent pupils are receiving no form of sexual education. And though he isn’t really equipped to teach them, he’s takes on the challenge of explaining “the birds and the bees”, much to the chagrin of their parents. Also a problem: The teach just happens to be a virgin.

Osment isn’t the only familiar face you’ll spot in this indie comedy. There’s Lorenza Izzo (The Green Inferno, Hemlock Grove), Glen Powell (Expendables 3, The Dark Knight Rises), Laura Harring (Gossip Girl), Abby Elliott (Saturday Night Live), Retta (Parks and Recreation), George Eads (CSI), Matt Walsh (Veep), and Lamorne Morris (The New Girl).

“Sex Ed”, uncut and in all its glory, will be hitting theaters on July 22, 2015, released through Solar Pictures.
