The upcoming romantic comedy Celeste and Jesse Forever has Rashida Jones (as an actress AND screenwriter), Andy Samberg, an intriguing premise about a married couple trying to remain friends amidst their impending divorce, and a director in Lee Toland Krieger. What it doesn’t have, is a sassy gay friend played by Elijah Wood. UNTIL … NOW:

“Wood will play Celeste’s business partner, a metrosexual who tries to be her ‘saucy gay friend’.”

He’s also joining Emma Roberts, Ari Graynor and Chris Messina. Wood has a lot of projects coming up, including the animated series “TRON: Uprising,” Happy Feet Two, the FX series “Wilfred,” and of course Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit. How he’s planning on figuring out the subtle nuances of the “saucy gay friend” with all that on his plate remains to be seen. I wish you luck, girlfriend! (The Hollywood Reporter)

With Bridesmaids being pelted with rice at the box office (in this instance, rice = dollars), it’s a good time to be a female-driven comedy. That may explain why Rashida JonesCeleste and Jesse Forever is finally moving forward after being shelved twice. The comedy-drama about a married couple who for some strange reason try to remain friends and roommates while going through a divorce has Jones and Andy Samberg secured to play the leads, and know we know that Emma Roberts, Chris Messina, and Ari Graynor are going to play the loveable knuckleheads who surround them.

Roberts will play “a starlet who, when her career sags, helps the protagonist come out of her shell by hiring her to revamp her image. Messina plays a financial analyst who helps Celeste get over Jesse, while Graynor will play Celeste’s best friend from college who’s uncomfortable with her unusual arrangement.” Frankly, I don’t buy it. Why would Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg get a divorce? Are his awkward raps not adorable enough for her?? Rap more adorably, Samberg. You’ve got a wife to think about now. (Variety)
