Jon Hamm Movie “Friends with Kids” Tipped Here in August!


Well, well.

Lots of “exclusives” today about the Jon Hamm-Jennifer Westfeldt movie, “Friends with Kids.”

The couple told me all about it, yes–exclusively–on August 29th, the night of the Emmy Awards. It was printed above the next day.

At the time the couple–Westfeldt wrote and will direct–had Kristen Wiig signed. They were hoping for Anne Hathaway. Sadly, it didn’t work out. And the role went to Megan Fox.

Adam Scott, who’s always good in everything, will round out the equation of two couples.

Mike Nichols is producing, and John Sloss of Cinetic is behind it all.

This “exclusive” business is getting tiresome. Since none of the people who claim it actually have it!
