While it seemed like actress Rebel Wilson’s buoyant comedic sense would have been the perfect fit for a network sitcom, her ABC series Super Fun Night hasn’t really won audiences or critics over, though its fairly steady ratings are keeping the show on the air. So it’s good that Wilson’s film career is moving along steadily, with high-profile films coming one after the other. Wilson has joined Amanda Seyfried in Universal’s upcoming comedy He’s Fucking Perfect, which is being produced by Will Farrell, Adam McKay and Kevin Messick’s Gary Sanchez Productions. While this gig is probably the least prominent, she stands to make it that much funnier in the end.

If you’ve seen 2012’s Bachelorette, you know what happens when Wilson decides to get married in a movie, but He’s Fucking Perfect will see her battling Seyfried for a love interest in the most modern of ways: using the Internet as a weapon. As Variety puts it, Seyfried will play a webfriendly woman who tries getting Wilson to dump a new boyfriend so that she can date him instead. Those are just the kinds of friends you always want, are they not?

It’s no surprise the Internet plays into the story, as it comes from writer Lauryn Kahn and director Jake Szymanski, both of whom have made their names writing and directing humorous online videos. Szymanski has gone on to direct episodes of Adult Swim’s NTSF:SD:SUV and the Golden Globe-winning comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine. But how can one possibly top Funny or Die’s "Forehead Tittaes?"

I haven’t mentioned it yet, but this sounds like a particularly trite storyline that I hope is filled with nuggets of originality. Wilson’s choices have been pretty strong as of late, capitalizing on her breakout role Bridesmaids with roles in the underappreciated Small Apartments and the highly popular Pitch Perfect. She’s following a role in Michael Bay’s Pain & Gain with a role in the star-studded sequel Night at the Museum3, along with voicing a character in Kung Fu Panda 3. And then there’s always that Pitch Perfect sequel that’s supposed to start filming this year.

For a further reminder of how silly Wilson can be, here’s her recent appearance on Conan. You’ll never see someone achieve such class in a chicken suit ever again.
