In BETTER STARTRUNNING, an unexpected series of events turns everyday store clerk Harley [Alex Sharp] into a wanted man... and even more unexpectedly, he finds himself on the run with the girl of his dreams (Analeigh Tipton). FBI Agent McFadden [Maria Bello] is determined to crush him and wants to teach her rookie partner [Karan Soni] how it's done. But while the agents pursue their culprit, our hero has loftier pursuits. He kidnaps his Vietnam vet grandfather [Jeremy Irons] to reunite him with the love of his life, picks up a try-hard beatnik hitchhiker [Edi Gathegi] with a secret of his own, and against all common sense follows a roadside attractions map with a mysterious history. As the agents get closer and closer with every stop, this eclectic band of misfits becomes an unlikely family.

  • JANE SEYMOUR

    JANE SEYMOURActor

    Jane Seymour was born as Joyce Penelope Wilhelmina Frankenberg in 1951 in Middlesex, England, to a nurse mother and gynaecologist/obstetrician father. She is of Dutch (mother) and Polish Jewish (father) descent. She changed her name to Jane Seymour when she entered showbusiness, because it was easier for people to remember, and it was the same name of one of King Henry VIII's wives. She attracted the attention of the James Bond film producers when they saw her on British television. She was cast as the main Bond girl named Solitaire in Live and Let Die (1973). It immediately gained her international recognition, but she was in danger of losing it all like the previous Bond girls, so she came to America. A casting director advised her to lose her English accent and acquire an American accent to land roles on American television. She did and started getting roles, earning five Emmy nominations, resulting in one win for Onassis: The Richest Man in the World (1988) for playing Maria Callas. She won Golden Globe awards for both East of Eden (1981) and the American television series Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman (1993), where she played the title role for 5 years. She occasionally appeared in feature films, memorably in Somewhere in Time (1980) and in Wedding Crashers (2005). Married and divorced four times, she gave birth to four children and is a stepmother to two. They have children of their own, making her a grandmother. As of 2018, the actress who is only three years from turning 70, looks several decades younger, and is busier than ever, acting in several television movies and making guest-appearances on shows.
