"Schlemiel, schlimazel, hasenpfeffer incorporated!"
They're gonna do it, according to Jamie Foxx and Garry Marshall, and the wonderpair will be played by Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel. The actresses are friends in the upcoming romcom Valentine's Day, and have become quite the duo, appearing on the cover of the Marie Claire "Girlfriends" issue, talking about how they don't work with a lot of women in their films, and how they bonded even when most of their scenes were over the phone. Now there are two comments that are getting the rumor mill buzzing.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, co-star Foxx saw so much chemistry between the women on the set that it reminded him of Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams' banter on the show. "During the movie, they were doing stuff off-screen that reminded me of Laverne & Shirley. I think they're the new Laverne & Shirley. They had some energy, and I mentioned that to Garry Marshall." Perez Hilton, meanwhile, has some dish from the Valentine's Day premiere, where director Garry said that both actresses are game, and: "We're gonna work on that. My sister Penny and Cindy are gonna have a guest cameo. They're gonna walk 'schlemiel, schlimazel' -- or they're gonna get tired in the middle and sit down."
I'm at a loss for words, so I'm handing this over to you folks. What do you think of Biel and Garner slapping that "L" and "S" on their chests? And my god, if this comes to pass, who would play Lenny, Squiggy, and the rest of the crew?! I shudder to think...
