Alison Brie

Over a year a go, Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart were reported to be teaming up for a new comedy called Get Hard. In the film, Ferrell is playing a rich, soft-handed investment bank manager who is sentenced to a maximum security prison for a crime he didn’t commit. So how is this white collar softie going to deal with hard time? With 30 days until he has to report to prison, he hires a streewise guy (Hart), who normally washes his car, to prepare him for the trials and tribulations of life in the big house. Now Deadline reports Ferrell has a fiance in the form of the funny and adorable "Community" and "Mad Men" star Alison Brie.

Brie made some fun waves with her voice as the Unikitty in The LEGO Movie, but she's stayed mostly busy on television. But whenever she has jumped to the big screen, as evidenced in The Five-Year Engagement, it's a real treat. While I'm not the biggest fan of Kevin Hart, I'm hoping his teaming up with Will Ferrell, especially with a script from "Key & Peele" executive producers and showrunners Ian Roberts and Jay Martel and Tropic Thunder Etan Cohen behind the camera, will make for some good comedy. Cool?
