Haley Joel Osment Has Entered His Gay Boy-Toy Phase

There is a trailer online for a new comedy called Sassy Pants, and we know that thanks to that title, this trailer is really going to have to earn your click. Well, here are two things that may tip the scales: Ashley Rickards stars in this movie, and you love her in Awkward. Also (and perhaps most important), she plays a teenage girl with a smothering mom and a gay dad, and do you know who plays the jean-shorted younger boyfriend of said gay dad? Oh yes, it is Haley Joel Osment, star of The Sixth Sense, A.I., and Secondhand Lions. (What, no Secondhand Lions fans in the house?) Still, you'd be forgiven for not recognizing Osment in this movie, seeing as how he's shirtless and wearing cutoff jeans, piercings, and a Kate Gosselin do. Unexpected!
