Busy designing for Louis Vuitton, his own Marc by Marc Jacobs and Marc Jacobs lines, as well as serving in his new role as the creative director of Diet Coke, who’d have thought the next step for Marc Jacobs would be acting? Jacobs makes his debut in the new dramatic thriller Disconnect, which follows the lives of individuals in trouble due to shady internet situations. Jacobs, surprisingly, plays the role of the ring leader behind a child pornography site. As strange as this may seem, as far as acting goes it appears as though Jacobs has found yet another thing he's tremendously talented at. 

Disconnect is now playing in select theaters; however, you can catch a preview of Jacobs' acting ability in the trailer now.
