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.

keli0k, I was only talking about the slacker/underachiever/trying to figure it out part, not his sexuality in either film.

um, Steve Zahn was gay in Reality Bites, so it's not really a grown up version of that role...

I wasn't too excited when I first read about this, but now... it could be funny. And haha, Zahn was funny in Friends.

I feel bad for her. She's an A-List star but doesn't have the pull necessary to make mega-successful movies, and because of her status she is expected to make mainstream movies to keep it.

This pairing will be gold.They are so funny and talented.He was also in Object of My Affection with Jennifer a few years back.She's taken her time to do a movie-something tells me this is a great script.It has a definite Indie feel to me-she does great in Indie flicks. According to something I read on Google this movie is expected to start filming soon in Oregon.Beautiful area-looking forward to this movie.

I can't pay full ticket price for Jennifer Aniston. Make mine a matinee or a rental.
