Ed Helms and Jennifer Lopez join Cameron Diaz in What to Expect When You’re Expecting
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I’m not sure what kind of world we live in where Cameron Diaz in an A-list actress and talents like Ed Helms and Isla Fisher are still stuck being supporting players. Even Jennifer Lopez, who I also don’t really like, has had to take a plunge from the height of her superstardom, but Diaz keeps on trucking despite a slew of unwatchable films. So I say all of that to point out that Ed Helms, Isla Fisher and J-Lo have all joined Cameron Diaz in the film WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE EXPECTING. The film is based loosely on the self-help book of the same name written by Shauna Cross and Heather Hach and will follow the trials and tribulations of a handful of pregnant women across the world.
So it kind of sounds like BABIES meets VALENTINE’S DAY, but with pregnant women. There was also news that Kristen Wiig was offered Fisher’s role, but turned it down to fulfill her SNL obligations. Personally, I would have liked to see Wiig in Diaz’s role. Kirk Jones (NANNY MCPHEE) is directing.
