Selena Gomez gets a featured role in a new music video for the song “Hold On” from her upcoming movie “Rudderless,” even though her actual role in the film is much smaller.

Selena is part of the supporting cast of the picture, which stars Billy Crudup, Felicity Huffman, Laurence Fishburne, Anton Yelchin and Ben Kweller.

But, hey, no harm no foul. Selena looks enticing in the soft light on a sofa with Kweller in what starts out as an acoustic duet.

As the song progresses, the video switches to scenes from the movie. William H. Macy , who makes his director debut, also appears along with Crudup and Yelchin in a band scene. Macy is on the keyboards.

At the end, the video cuts to a concert of Crudup’s band from the movie.

The actor plays Sam, a father who is grief-stricken after his son dies. He buries his sorrow in alcohol after retreating to live on his small sailboat.

He finds a box containing his son’s music and demo tapes and becomes determined to learn how to play guitar and perform his son’s music.

Another young musician, Quentin, played by Yelchin, hears him in a bar and convinces him to form a band and try to go big.

Selena has a supporting role, playing the dead son’s girlfriend.

“Rudderless” will be released in theaters and pay-per-view on Oct. 17. The Rudderless soundtrack is on sale now.
