Ari Graynor Talks CELESTE AND JESSE FOREVER, Finding a Realistic Tone, FRINGE, and More

     July 31, 2012


With director Lee Toland Krieger‘s romantic comedy/drama Celeste and Jesse Forever opening this weekend, I recently got to talk with Ari Graynor.  In the film, Andy Samberg stars with Rashida Jones as a divorcing couple who are having trouble maintaining their intense friendship while living together and pursuing other relationships.  In addition, Jones co-wrote the script with Will McCormack, and it’s a great mix of realistic comedy and drama.  It’s definitely recommended.  Celeste and Jesse also stars Elijah Wood, Chris Messina and Emma Roberts.

During my interview with Graynor we talked about making Celeste and Jesse Forever, how they found the realistic tone on set, Dunkin Donuts, and will she make a final appearance on Fringe.   Hit the jump to watch.
