We finally have our leading lady for the comedy Bad Teacher! Cameron Diaz has signed on for the film, which follows a dirty-mouthed middle-school teacher with a penchant for rich men. Once her sugar daddy dumps her, she tries to romance a colleague — the only problem is she has to battle a rival teacher for his affection.
I feel like it's been a while since we've seen Diaz do a funny film, and I'm especially excited for this one because it's penned by two of the writers from The Office, giving me faith that the humor will be on point. (Well, hopefully. I know the jury's still out on this season of the show). I'd love to see a return to the Diaz we saw in There's Something About Mary. After My Sister's Keeper and The Box, I sort of miss her goofy, guffawing, booty-shaking shtick.
Do you think this film sounds promising or is there another actress you would prefer to see in the role?
