Aniston and Zahn Make Management

The news:
Jennifer Aniston and Steve Zahn will play the leads in a romantic comedy called Management.

What's the story?
According to Variety, "Aniston will play a traveling saleswoman who sells cheap art to small companies and motels. She has a fling with an aimless, underachieving assistant motel manager (Zahn) at one of her stops, and he pursues her all over the U.S." Stalking = hilarious?

Why it might be good:
The movie is being written and directed by playwright Stephen Belber, who was involved with The Laramie Project and is quickly rising through the writing ranks in Hollywood.

Zahn is playing a slacker again.
For whatever reason, it makes me happy when Reality Bites stars play grown-up versions of their roles in that movie. It's much less freaky than, say, Ethan Hawke playing a dad in The Hottest State.

Funny trivia:
This isn't Zahn's first dalliance with a "Friends" star. Fans might recall that Zahn played Phoebe's first husband, Duncan, in one episode.
