Move over, Jennifer Hudson! Just last year, Sarah Jessica Parker had a romantic assistant who passworded all of her love letters with "love." Now THR reports that the Sex and the City star is getting a new assistant for her upcoming romcom Did You Hear About the Morgans? (The same project I mentioned here.) The assistant in question: Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss. But unlike her meek television personality, Moss will get to be a "controlling and almost obsessive-compulsive personality" -- which must get set off when her boss is shoved into witness protection.
Anyhow, it's about time she got a mainstream gig! Moss has had some other big feature work like Girl, Interrupted (she played Polly, the burned girl) and Virgin, which got her an Independent Spirit nomination, but it's been all television and low-buz gigs these days. It might be a romcom, but at least she won't have to be all soft and sweet this time around.
Meanwhile, the untitled Nancy Meyers pic is quickly turning into a who's who of the older funny set. Last we heard, the film boasted the likes of Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin, and Steve Martin. Now THR reports that Rita Wilson has been added into the mix, to play one of Streep's best friends. This definitely sounds like an improvement from Old Dogs for Wilson. And I can't help but hope: Who could be next? Teri Garr? Martin Short? Or, I cherish the thought -- Wilson's hubby Tom Hanks putting on his comedic hat once again?
