America's Next Top Model Cycle 11 beauty and former figure skater, Analeigh Tipton, who finished third in her cycle and lost out to McKey, will star in the upcoming Sony Picture Classics comedy, Damsels in Distress. Yeah, you read right — stars. Like an actual lead role. She rounds out a leading trio including goddess of quirk, Greta Gerwig, and The OC hottie, Adam Brody.

Whit Stillman directs the flick, which follows three women "who set out to revolutionize life at a grungy East Coast university." Presumably, Adam Brody is not one of the three women. Greta plays the leader, while Analeigh comes into the picture as a transfer student, as the group helps depressed students deal with their symptoms through the use of musical dance numbers. Um, sounds kooky. We love it and we can't believe a Top Model actually snagged a lead role in an indie film. Actually, we can, because Analeigh was one of the most beautiful Top Model hopefuls ever in our humble opinion. Way to boost ANTM's street cred, Analeigh!

(PS. If you'd like to check out Analeigh's film debut, she had a bit part in The Green Hornet earlier this year.)
