                       YOUR COVERAGE IS INVITED

           "The New Guy" opens nationwide on May 10th, 2002WHAT:   SPECIAL SCREENING OF COLUMBIA PICTURES' "The New Guy"

        Nerdy high school senior Dizzy Harrison ("Road Trip's" DJ
        Qualls) has finally gotten lucky. Thanks to an unlikely role
        model ("Deuce Bigalow's" Eddie Griffin), he's got a second
        chance to be the guy with no past in "The New Guy," a
        hilarious story about wiping the slate clean and reinventing
        yourself. Locked in the pen for an array of misdeeds at his
        old school, Dizzy learns the art of intimidation and other
        fine points of "prison cool" from fellow inmate Luther
        (Griffin). This mismatched duo joins forces, ultimately
        transforming geeky dud Dizzy into the hip, studly "Gil
        Harris." Transferred to a new school after his release, "Gil"
        destroys the popularity-obsessed social system, boosts school
        morale and wins the heart of Danielle ("Bring It On's" Eliza
        Dushku), the gorgeous girl-next-door. Life as the new guy is
        great -- or is it?

        Deschanel, Ross Patterson, Jerod Mixon, director Ed Decter,
