It’s alright if you’ve never heard of Analeigh Tipton. That just means that you don’t watch America’s Next Top Model, and that’s perfectly acceptable. I’m sure the show is all well and good, but I wouldn’t exactly peg it as demo-bending in any way. If you’re not into fashion of verbal abuse, you may not get into it.
You should however, get into the work of John Requa and Glenn Ficarra, the directorial team who delivered the very funny Jim Carrey/Ewan Macgregor comedy I Love You Philip Morris. Tipton has joined the production of their next film, a marital crisis film that will also star Ryan Gosling and Steve Carell. She is set to play a babysitter who develops a crush on Steve Carell’s character, while simultaneously being the object of his 13-year old son’s affection. Carell’s character’s life begins to unravel as his relationship with his wife erodes and his relationship with his children teeters on the edge.
According to Variety, Emma Stone is also set to star as Carell’s daughter and the love interest of Ryan Gosling’s character. It’s all a big messy web of potential hilarity. And with a solid cast, to boot.
