I love a good romantic comedy, and so harbored high hopes for Something Borrowed since the early stages of development. I have heard good things about the Emily Giffin novel/source material, and generally believe Ginnifer Goodwin can do no wrong. But Kate Hudson in a rom-com is enough to caution anyone familiar with her work over the last decade.
The good news: Hudson is meant to play an awful person, and even gets the biggest laughs in the new trailer despite the presence of John Krasinski. (Well played, casting director Mandy Sherman.) See for yourself after the jump.
Warner Bros. is keeping me intrigued in their upcoming romantic comedy Something Borrowed with some savvy casting, and not in that everyone-has-an-Oscar way. I’d travel to Hades and back for female lead Ginnifer Goodwin. John Krasinski is consistently great on The Office, and his supporting role in Borrowed could be the one that sends him over that darned feature film hump. I don’t know much about co-star Colin Egglesfield, and they lost me a bit in signing Kate Hudson for the best friend role. But a tweet from Production Weekly recaptures that energy with word of a wild (in every sense of the word) card in talks for the role of Marcus: Colin Farrell. Hmm. Let’s talk about this in more detail after the jump.
