Zooey Deschanel, Rashida Jones, Elizabeth Banks, and Emily Mortimer to Star in My Idiot Brother With Paul Rudd 2010-06-09 11:15:16

Paul Rudd Nabs Fab Four: Deschanel, Banks, Jones, Mortimer

Big ups to the commenters who suggested Zooey Deschanel to play Paul Rudd's sister in his upcoming comedy My Idiot Brother: she's just signed on, along with three other amazing actresses! Emily Mortimer and Elizabeth Banks will portray Rudd's two other sisters — and get this, Rashida Jones has been cast in the part of Deschanel's girlfriend.

Don't pinch yourself: it's totally true. The character backgrounds are even more intriguing: Banks is a single journalist on the verge of her big break, Deschanel's a flake who is sabotaging her relationship, and Mortimer is an alpha mom who may be close to divorce. As their brother, Rudd's character will invade their lives and bring chaos and happiness.

The big question is: which part am I most excited about? Deschanel and Jones as a couple? The trio of ladies I love as Rudd's sisters? This is tough stuff.
