It has been making the rounds across blogs and indie mags over the last few days, so I’m a little late posting. But anyway, here is Mischa’s debut as a cult member of the Church of Nobody as a guest star for Willis Earl Beal’s “Coming Through” video.
It’s kind of equal parts strange as it is funny – but overall it’s a really cool (also creppy) concept. The video runs for over 10 minutes.

Actress Mischa Barton guest stars as a cult member in the video for Willis Earl Beal’s song, ‘Coming Through’.
The 10 minute long video for the Cat Power-featuring song – from last year’s ‘Nobody Knows’ album – sees the former star of The OC as a member of Beal’s Church Of Nobody, a cult-like group based in New Mexico. The video is made up of grainy camcorder footage and veers on the NSFW. Click above to watch the video.
The video features a large scale version of a piece of Beal’s art, called Mischa, why the pencil?. Speaking last year to NME about the drawing, Beal commented: “The concept is really abstract. I think Mischa Barton is pretty attractive, so I drew her and myself stood behind her, but nothing specifically is happening… I’ve drawn quite a few lascivious pictures and there aren’t meant to be themes to them – I guess I’m just a person who likes to draw attractive women.”
Check out this incredible new trailer for Mischa’s upcoming role in A Prayer for Rain. The film is inspired by the real events surrounding the tragic Bhopal disaster. Mischa’s co-stars are Martin Sheen and Kal Penn.

In 1945 Union Carbide Corporation helped build the atomic bomb. In 1984 they built a time-bomb…
Starring Martin Sheen, Mischa Barton, Kal Penn and a powerful ensemble cast, “Bhopal A Prayer For Rain” is an epic, ‘whodunnit’ that exposes the shocking events that led to the biggest man made industrial disaster in history, in which as many as 10,000 people were killed in one night and for those that did survive, the tragedy had just begun.
Dilip, a rickshaw driver in Bhopal, India, lands himself a job at the Union Carbide plant. It is a chance to prove his worth to his family and pull them out of poverty. The job is tough with long hours; everyone is desperate to hold on to their pay cheque and so Dilip keeps quiet when he notices managers at the plant ignoring safety standards.
Dilip’s long time friend, Motwani, a tabloid journalist knows that Bhopal residents complain of the constant stench in the air and wake up at night choking from the gas. He is on a mission to expose what he believes is a deadly time bomb ticking away in his home town. He feels as if no one will listen but when he meets feisty American journalist, Eva, he sees a ray of hope and persuades her to confront Carbide executive Warren Anderson.
As Eva and Motwani endeavour to delve deeper into Carbide’s activities, Dilip is using every resource necessary to pay and plan for his sister’s wedding. When the wedding night arrives the family are full of joy and celebration as two families join together as one. But as the music plays an invisible catastrophe is working its way throughout the town and wedding party. One by one the guests start to feel unwell the largest tower at the Carbide plant spews poisonous gas into the night air; one by one they collapse; and one by one they unknowingly become a statistic in the world’s largest chemical disaster to date.
Nearly thirty years later as the plant stands as a ghost-like constant reminder, the water in Bhopal is still contaminated and one person a day dies as a direct result of the tragedy, Eva visits the now retired Anderson. Will he finally bow down and apologise? Or will he continue to deny that Carbide had any part to play…?
A disaster that set a deadly precedent for multinational corporate activity in the developing world and revealed a poisonous corruption at the heart of India, the world’s largest democracy – this is a story that demands to be seen.
