Charlie Day, Christina Applegate Are Going the Distance With Drew and Justin


Two of TV's funniest comedic actors (in my opinion) are joining up with Drew Barrymore and Justin Long for the romantic comedy Going the Distance. The movie focuses on long-distance relationships, with Drew and Justin playing the main duo. Christina Applegate and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's Charlie Day will play supporting characters: Day will take the role of "Long's best friend while Applegate is Barrymore's sister." Barrymore and Applegate as sisters is a little hard to buy, but OK. I like all these actors and can't wait to see how they interact.

I'm especially interested to see Charlie Day on the big screen. Due to Always Sunny's demanding schedule, none of the main actors on the FX comedy have done much film work. Day explained, "I couldn't just up and take [the role]. I had to sit down with the guys and work out a schedule and say, 'If you're comfortable, I'm going to be doing a bit of flying back and forth.' . . . It has to be very interesting for us to bow out of our responsibility and pass the buck." So I'm going to go ahead and assume that if Going the Distance qualifies as "very interesting" by Charlie Day's standards, it's gotta be pretty dang good. Right?

Nitachequita, I completely agree. If it were Day and Applegate, I'd be even more excited!

Much as I love Justin Long, I'd rather it be Christina and Charlie as the leads. Drew's acting irks me.

Believe it or not, I've only just discovered "Sunny" thanks to Hulu. It's now a total fave and I can't wait to see Charlie's comic talents on the big screen.

I've always wondered why we never get to see more of the awesome Sunny guys outside of Philly - but I'm so glad my darling sweet silly Charlie gets to have a movie!He could be the new Zach Galifiniakis! Lol!

I like most of the actors too and the topic is an interesting one...but I wouldn't like it if they don't tackle long distance relationships in the typical way (I actually see it as a kind of courtship and that it can make relationships stronger if done right...sorry for the tangent) and not some "real world" type thing.The only reason I would think that is because of Drew Barrymore's presence (I've always loved her) and her "He's Just Not That Into You" movie. Otherwise, I'm really interested in seeing what Christina Applegate does and I need to get in "Always Sunny" (hate to admit it but I don't watch it!)That's just my two cents. :)

Sunny is a GREAT show. I am excited to see Charlie on the big screen. It will be interesting to see how he traditions into a different role rather than Charlie!
