Adam Scott set to star alongside Jon Hamm in my dreams, and in an actual movie

Adam-ScottImage Credit: Amanda Meredith/PR PhotosAdam Scott will star in screenwriter Jennifer Westfeldt’s upcoming Friends With Kids, the actor’s rep confirms. He’ll be in good company, too, alongside Kristin Wiig and Westfeldt’s longtime partner Jon Hamm. Adam Scott and Jon Hamm on the same screen? Be still my heart.

As a slavish fan of Party Down, Mad Men, and stories written by women, this is pretty much the best news I’ve ever heard. Westfeldt’s previous films — the indie classic Kissing Jessica Stein and the less-seen-but-totally-cute Ira and Abby — combine wry social observations with genuine warmth and stylized storytelling. Yay for everything. Even Piranha 3-D.

Does this take the sting away from Party Down being canceled, PopWatchers? (Not for me.) Do you want to see Hamm and Scott play snuggly besties, or might they be a little more fun as adversaries?

    Oh, this is really good news. I love Adam Scott. Even follow him on Twitter. And, of course, I love Jon Hamm so this is doubly good.

  • Meh

    Why oh why are they muddying this potentially fun idea with Kristen Wiig?

    • DT

      I must agree with Meh about the Kristen Wiig sentiments. It’s odd that the actord who are not comedians by trade are actually funnier than the “funny girl.” I’d probably still sleep with her if she invited me, though.

    Best. Headline. Ever.

    Kissing Jessica Stein is one of my favorite movies ever, and if I remember correctly, Jon Hamm had a small part in it. Yay for Jennifer Westfeldt!

    The reason why I started to watch Parks and Recreation again was b/c of Rob Lowe, but then once I saw that Adam Scott was also in the episodes, it became more of watching the show for him!!!! And Jon Hamm is amazing and gorgeous in anything!!

  • Mr. Holloway

    Never saw “Party Down”, but I first noticed him in “Tell Me You Love Me”, and I liked him on “Parks and Rec”. Great to see good things happening for him.

    I hear Anne Hathaway may co-star in this movie.

    Jon Hamm and Adam Scott together? If ASkars joined the cast I would literally die.
