Rashida Jones can currently be found on big screens across the country, being completely adorable alongside Paul Rudd in I Love You, Man, and she'll soon be on our small screens on Amy Poehler's show, Parks and Recreation. Turns out Jones is a lady of many talents, as she recently sold a screenplay — co-written by actor Will McCormack — titled Celeste and Jesse Forever to Fox Atomic. The comedy "revolves around a young divorcing couple who try to maintain their longstanding friendship while pursuing other relationships." Jones is also attached to star as half of the young couple.
I can't wait to see Rashida Jones in a lead role like this. She always comes off as mature, funny, and smart on screen, and I think it's a relief to mix in some new blood to the world of romantic comedy leads. I wonder who will play her husband . . . got suggestions?
