Tina Fey seeks Admission
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Tina Fey is returning to the big screen in the comedy from Universal pictures entitled ADMISSION. In the film, Fey will play a college admissions worker who starts a steamy affair with one of her students. AMERICAN PIE mastermind Paul Weitz is behind the picture, but other than that, we don’t have any firm commitments from any stars or even Fey herself. I guess at this point it’s in the planning stages. But the role seems like something Fey would do and I’m sure it will be all about how “plain” she is and how “uncharacteristic” it is for her to have an affair with a younger man.
Personally, I’d like to see something more from Fey, but I guess if this is done right, it could be funny. Fey has been relatively quiet of late and we went from seeing her every 30 seconds during the Presidential campaign to only catching her on ’30 Rock’ and doing voice-work in MEGAMIND. But she does have a film with Meryl Streep that should be moving along.
