Fox Atomic Picks Up Rashida Jones's Divorce Comedy Script

Fox Atomic Picks Up Rashida Jones's Divorce Comedy Script

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?

wanderlusting — It's true that it's Eric McCormack who starred in Will and Grace (so I took that part out because I was mistaken — thanks for the heads-up), but it's WILL McCormack who is also an actor and who wrote this screenplay with Rashida Jones. :)

Sugar: It's ERIC McCormack, not Will :)

I totally support Taadie's suggestion of Jeffrey Dean Morgan. I need to see more of him, he's just so yummy.

Its not original but I would pay to see her and John Krasinski again. Maybe Idris Elba, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Columbus Short, Mos Def, John Leguizamo, Josh Charles. But these are mostly people I would just like to see more of in general.
