Missing Fringe? Then watch creepy teaser for John Noble's next pic

Fringe may be done, but the great John Noble is still dishing out riveting performances.

Noble's lovable, always unpredictable Dr. Walter Bishop was our favorite part of the cult sci-fi series, and now Noble's brought that same unsettling magnetism to Friend, a short film he co-wrote with his daughter Jess that was directed by Fringe director of photography David Geddes. According to Noble, the short was filmed around the same time the Fringe finale was completed.

"Friend was a labor of love," Noble said. "During the turbulent last stage of filming the Fringe series finale, my Fringe colleagues gave their precious time and amazing talent to realize my daughter Jessie’s beautiful short film. Two intense and fun filled days of filming, and then over to Ari Margolis and Jeremy Little to weave their magic with the editing and score. It was an unforgettable experience. I adore the film. Sad, and funny, and special."

Check out the trailer below. It's a brief look, but we can already tell Noble's delivering his usual magic.

And here's the official synopsis:

A lonely, grief stricken man of wealth finds a new lease on life after an unusual ‘friend’ is mysteriously delivered to his door. A unique and unexpected relationship quickly forms, bringing hope and color to the man’s bleak existence. But will tragedy strike again?

Friend will likely be making the rounds on the festival circuit this year, so keep an eye out to see if it'll end up screening in your city.
