Thanks for Trying Out, Here's Your Rom-Com

Apparently, the consolation prize for not donning the America tights is a rom-com. I reported yesterday that Chris Evans was joining Anna Faris, and now Pajiba sometimer Christopher Campbell reported over at Cinematical that John Krasinski is opting to join the franchise rom-com Something Borrowed. Based on the clit-lit series by Emily Giffin (anyone? anyone?), Ginnifer Goodwin will be playing the lead who steals her best friend’s fiance. Krasinski isn’t to play the nogudnik altar-leaver-er, but rather Goodwin’s best bud in a supporting role.

To date, Krasinski’s had to romantically pursue Jenna Fischer, Mandy Moore, Maya Rudolph, and Squishface Zellweger. I didn’t think Krasinski had the chops to carry a lead until Away We Go, and this a far fucking cry from that hipsterical sentiment. But apparently Hilary Swank — who’s producing the project — thinks Halpert’s got the diaperin’ skills, since the character is slated to play the lead in the proposed sequel Something Blue. There’s already a fucking sequel for a flick that’s yet to be shown?

I wanted to see Krasinski in an action role. I mean, he’s no Alexi Lalas (are you happy now, Rusty, goddamn you?) and he’s certainly no William Goss, but I think the kid’s got the charisma to pull off the role. Actually I was hoping for Thomas Jane or Nathan Fillion, but they’re skewing youngish for the Cap.

I’m sick of talking about superheroes and romantic comedies already. Isn’t it SXSW yet?
