Ryan Reynolds Will Don Drag To Get The Girl
In today's story about a potential new role for Ryan Reynolds, Variety throws out the term "dude-in-drag romantic comedy" as if it's a genre that's well-established by now. Really, when was the last time we got one of those? In the last decade or so women have donned fake mustaches a handful of times to get the guy-- OK, mostly Gwyneth in Shakespeare in Love and that one Amanda Bynes movie-- but the last time I can think of a guy in a dress getting the girl is Tootsie. And before that, Some Like it Hot-- and that really only worked out for Tony Curtis.
But if there's any guy who can set off romantic sparks while wearing pearls, it's Reynolds, who could really do anything. Working Title tied for the comedy concept, which will be written by Allan Loeb, who wrote both Wall Street 2 and the Jennifer Aniston- Jason Bateman romantic comedy The Baster. The script here is less of a concern-- Reynolds made gold out of the mediocre The Proposal-- than how hot Reynolds will be in a dress. Come on, you know you're wondering the same thing.
