Fox Searchlight Pictures has released two featurettes and five clips from the indie comedy Ruby Sparks, directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (Little Miss Sunshine). Paul Dano stars as a young writer, struggling with his next book, who breaks his writer's block by creating a character named Ruby Sparks (Zoe Kazan). A week later, he discovers that this character has actually been brought to life. Watch as Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, actress/screenwriter Zoe Kazan, and Paul Dano take us behind-the scenes in the featurettes, along with these new clips.


Calvin (Paul Dano) is a young novelist who achieved phenomenal success early in his career but is now struggling with his writing - as well as his romantic life.

Finally, he makes a breakthrough and creates a character named Ruby who inspires him. When Calvin finds Ruby (Zoe Kazan), in the flesh, sitting on his couch about a week later, he is completely flabbergasted that his words have turned into a living, breathing person.
