There’s no doubt that I Love You, Man is going to be a funny movie. The cast is fantastic, and the premise is an easy setup for both big laughs and a heartwarming ending. But what I’m having a hard time deciding, is who’s going to be the funniest one of them all?
Jason Segel has proven himself hilarious time and again on How I Met Your Mother, and his upcoming movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall looks funny as well. On the other hand, Paul Rudd never fails to steal a scene from anyone he’s in a movie with.
Then we have the ladies. Both Rashida Jones and Jaime Pressley are extremely talented comedic actresses. Jones was a great straight-woman off of John Krasinski’s Jim Halpert on The Office, and Pressley is one of the highlights of My Name Is Earl (especially now that Earl’s in a coma and we’ve strayed from The List).
Since I can’t decide, who do you think is going to be the funniest one?
In what’s shaping up to be my favorite cast of the year (with the notable exception of The Dark Knight), the romantic comedy I Love You, Man has added My Name Is Earl star Jaime Pressley to the cast. Empire Online says she’ll play the best friend of Rashida Jones’ character. For more details on the plot, check out our previous (super-excited) post about the flick.
As if I wasn’t already excited enough about I Love You, Man, now Rashida Jones (Karen from “The Office”) is joining the cast. Empire Online says she’ll be playing Paul Rudd’s fiance. I can imagine Rudd, Jones, and co-star Jason Segel will all work really well together.
I Love You, Man tells the story of an engaged man (Rudd) who finds a random stranger (Segel) to be his best man. No US release date yet.
