The works of John Steinbeck usually call to mind poverty, labor struggles and family drama, a trio of hardships that, while evocative, don't exactly bring the laughs. All that's about to change, however, thanks to the Zachary Quinto-produced short version of East of Eden, a comedic take on the classic novel starring a surprisingly funny Penn Badgley (A.K.A. Dan Humphrey from Gossip Girl).
