Mindy Kaling to Have 'Five Year Engagement' with Segel and Blunt
Last November we learned that Gulliver's Travels co-stars Emily Blunt and Jason Segel would reunite for a less fantastical romance in the form of Five Year Engagement at Universal. The project also reunites Segel with Forgetting Sarah Marshall director Nicholas Stoller and brings a great supporting cast including Alison Brie ("Community"), Chris Pratt ("Parks & Recreation") and Rhys Ifans into the mix. Now Variety reports Mindy Kaling, who has made a name for herself not only starring in, but writing for NBC's comedy series "The Office" has joined the cast as a grad student under the tutelage of Ifans' character in the story.
In addition, just recently Variety also reported that David Paymer (Ocean's Thirteen) and Jacki Weaver (Animal Kingdom) are also joining this quickly growing cast. Paymer is playing Segel's father (the two also co-star in Bad Teacher), but it's not clear what role Weaver will take (a safe assumption might be her playing Segel's mother). The story follows the ups and downs of an extended engagement between Blunt and Segel, but knowing the kind of romantic comedy Stoller delivered with Forgetting Sarah Marshall, I'm sure it'll be much more interesting than the logline suggests. Stay tuned for more casting I'm sure is on the way.
