Mae Whitman squares off against Bella Thorne in ‘The Duff’ trailer

Coming to theaters in the spring of 2015 is the new teen-comedy ‘The Duff’. In the film Bianca (Mae Whitman) is a content high school senior whose world is shattered when she learns the student body knows her as ‘The DUFF’ (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) to her prettier, more popular friends (Skyler Samuels & Bianca Santos).

Now, despite the words of caution from her favorite teacher (Ken Jeong), she puts aside the potential distraction of her crush, Toby (Nick Eversman), and enlists Wesley (Robbie Amell), a slick but charming jock, to help reinvent herself.

To save her senior year from turning into a total disaster, Bianca must find the confidence to overthrow the school’s ruthless label maker Madison (Bella Thorne) and remind everyone that no matter what people look or act like, we are all someone’s DUFF. The film was directed by Ari Sandel from a screenplay by Josh A. Cagan and based on the book written by Kody Keplinger.

The film stars Mae Whitman: Bianca, Robbie Amell: Wesley, Bella Thorne: Madison, Bianca Santos: Casey, Skyler Samuels: Jess, Romany Malco: Principle Buchanan, Nick Eversman: Toby, With Ken Jeong: Mr. Arthur, And Allison Janney: Dottie
