Celeste and Jesse Forever

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a future romantic comedy titled Celeste and Jesse Forever is steadily gaining a big-name cast. Rashida Jones (Celeste) and Andy Samberg (Jesse) are in the middle of a divorce and trying to maintain a friendship while exploring other relationships. Elijah Wood has signed on to play Celeste's metrosexual business partner who wants to be her "saucy gay friend". Others who have signed on are Emma Roberts, Ari Graynor, and Chris Messina.

I think this has some big potential as a film. I love Andy Samberg and Rashida Jones has great comedic-acting chops too. She works great as a down-to-earth girl in a comedic world, like I Love You, Man, The Office and Parks and Recreation. Hopefully this lives up to it's potential so doubters who didn't like Hot Rod can have a reason to respect Andy Samberg as an actor. Until then, we'll just have to enjoy his SNL work with The Lonely Island.
