Rose Byrne And Anna Faris Join I Give It A Year
When we reported the news last week that Simon Baker would be playing a role in the upcoming comedy I Give It A Year, there was a key piece of information missing. It was unclear in the report if it would be Baker or the previously cast Rafe Spall who would play the husband in the recently-married couple who would have to deal with the ups and downs that come in the first year of marriage. Today we have not only found the answer to that question, but two lovely and talented actresses have joined the cast.
Reporting that it will be Spall playing the husband while Baker plays a "strong supporting character," Variety has learned that both Rose Byrne and Anna Faris have joined the ranks. Byrne, who showed off her comedic talents in the blockbuster his Bridesmaids last year, will be playing Spall's wife, while Faris will be another "strong supporting character." The project was written and directed by Dan Mazer, whose previous credits include Da Ali G Show and co-writing the script for both Borat and Bruno. I Give It A Year will mark his feature directorial debut.
This is an interesting move for Faris. She's spent so much of her career as a leading lady, it will be fascinating to see how she performs in a supporting role. Given that three of her last four films included What's Your Number?, Alvin and the Chimpmunks: Chipwrecked, and Yogi Bear, this could definitely be a chance for her to start being in funny movies again. Hopefully Mazer's work allows her to do that.
