Rashida Jones writes, stars in divorce comedy

01.13.2010

I'm pretty much amazed at what Rashida Jones has been able to do while being given so little. She was put into an extremely tough situation on "The Office" (the "other girl" wedged in-between the "beloved" Jim and Pam), has the least to do on "Parks and Recreation" and her film roles have been mostly thankless. So she's doing something smart most female actresses wouldn't do: she's writing her own project. She co-wrote the divorce-themed comedy CELESTE AND JESSE FOREVER with Will McCormack and has set the project up at Overture with Seth Gordon (FOUR CHRISTMASES, KING OF KONG) set to direct.

The project would star Jones as Celeste, one-half of a once blissfully married couple going through a divorce. The film would track their struggles to remain friends through and after the divorce as they find new relationships. It's unclear if McCormack, who's also an actor, would star as Jesse. As for Jones, her career could see a big boost later this year with a starring role in David Fincher's THE SOCIAL NETWORK (and to a lesser degree, next month in Kevin Smith's COP OUT).

Extra Tidbit: I do have to say though, the Rashida Jones/Paul Schneider romance on "Parks and Rec" is pretty cute.

She's hit or miss for me. Sometimes she's hotter then anything and other times she looks boyish and boring. Mostly the former though.


btw is Parks and Rec any good? I've caught some scenes here and there but I'm not too in love with Amy Poehler.. worth check out?

when i watch parks and rec... i just imagine its Karen from the Office, who moved to Pawnee Indiana to start a new life after the whole Jim/Pam thing. Then she met Mark Brandanowitz AKA Alternate Jim.

really?

Rashida Jones was "given so little"? you realize her dad is Quincy Jones (producer of Thriller) and her mom is the chick from the Mod Squad? so she was pretty much born with everything (looks, money, industry connections).

but that don't stop me from loving her...
