Three Funny Ladies Get Great Comedic Roles

I love news days like today. Three actresses I love and admire have nabbed roles in promising comedies. Check it out:

  • Leslie Mann — Everyone's favorite hysterical wife from Knocked Up is signed on to play another spouse, this time married to Jim Carrey in the black comedy I Love You, Phillip Morris. According to Hollywood Reporter, "The story follows a married father (Carrey) who is sent to prison and falls in love with a cellmate named Phillip Morris. His love leads him to make several escape attempts."
  • Toni Collette will be joining the untitled Sam Mendes "relationship comedy" that already stars Maya Rudolph and John Krasinski. The HR description makes me smirk: "Collette will play a college professor and close family friend of a couple (Krasinski and Rudolph) canvasing the country to find the best place to raise their unborn child. She's convinced that their kid will end up dysfunctional no matter where it's raised." Yet another funny lady, Cheryl Hines, will also star in this one.
  • Candice Bergen will probably effortlessly slip into the role of "Marion St. Claire, the queen of all wedding planners" in the wedding comedy Bride Wars which stars Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway. According to Variety, "Story revolves around best friends (Hudson and Hathaway) who are pitted against each other when their wedding dates clash. They compete for venues, services and guests."

I cannot sing the praises of Toni Collette loud enough! She is a totally amazing actress, she gets so into her character and is able to portray just about ANY role. Leslie and Candace are fabulous as well.

It's weird the character's name is Phillip Morris. Something tells me there will be a cigarette smoker in the movie...

Leslie Mann is underrated and underused. I love her.
