Zooey gets High

07.10.2009

Zooey Deschanel has signed on to co-star in the upcoming Universal comedy YOUR HIGHNESS for director David Gordon Green (PINEAPPLE EXPRESS). Deschanel joins Danny McBride, James Franco and Natalie Portman in the film about a lazy prince (McBride) who must save his father's kingdom with the help of his heroic brother (Franco).

Wait. Did I just say that Zooey Deschanel and Natalie Portman were to be co-starring in the same movie? Warning: Possible Cute Overload. This could only be surpassed perhaps by a movie about kittens frolicking around in a sun-drenched meadow.

In the film Zooey and Natalie will play lesbian lovers the respective love interests of Franco and McBride's characters. The film, which was written by McBride and Ben Best, will start filming later this month in Northern Ireland.

Extra Tidbit: Before you nerdgasm, Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman were in a movie together and it pretty much sucked.

I agree with razgriz21 and beatrixkiddo about the cute factor being out of control (in a good way) by casting these two in the same movie together.

As for acting, I think both Natalie and Zooey are capable of giving great performances when given good material.

Some people seem to base their entire opinion of Portman on her "wooden" acting in the Star Wars prequels. Well, didn't those movies have "wooden" dialogue. No one came out of those movies looking good.

Wow, best female casting choices ever, but I'm still not on the McBride bandwagon. And I didn't think the Other Boylen Girl was that bad.

If Danny McBride has anything to do with it, its bound(hah) to be funny, add in james franco who will no doubt be great and two beautiful women, a great director and a plot that sounds so ridiculously hilarious-this will be greatness.

Two bad actresses starring in the same movie. Natalie Portman is just hammy and annoying to me and Zooey Deschanel...yeah she's cute but she's the most wooden person i've ever seen on screen. i mean how does she keep getting gigs?!

I love James Franco but even that's not enough to get me excited about that plot....

I just think Zooey has never really had a role that's worth of her talent. She's just relegated to "the girlfriend" or the "love interest." Basically what she's playing in this movie.
