Elijah Wood joins Andy Samberg, Rashida Jones and Emma Roberts in Celeste and Jesse Forever
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Elijah Wood is the latest thespian to join the romantic comedy CELESTE AND JESSE FOREVER from director Lee Toland Krieger. The film follows a couple (played by Andy Samberg and Rashida Jones) who are in the middle of a divorce but are still trying to be friends while pursuing other relationships. Elijah Wood is set to play Celeste’s colleague who is being described as “a metrosexual who tries to be her ‘saucy gay friend'”, quite a description, huh? Other cast members include Emma Roberts, Chris Messina and Ari Graynor. No word on when production will start, but the story sounds pretty good thus far.
I’m sure you all know by now, but you can also expect to see Mr. Wood in Peter Jackson’s upcoming films THE HOBBIT PARTS 1 AND 2, as he reprises his role as Frodo. I’m a fan of Elijah Wood and am glad to see him back in the saddle and taking on more roles. Apparently he’s even making his television debut on “Wilfred” which I may just have to check out.
