Actress will also co-star in 'Chilled in Miami'
Rashida Jones has landed the female lead in DreamWorks’ comedy “I Love You, Man,” opposite Paul Rudd and Jason Segal. “The Office” regular also will co-star in the Renee Zellweger-Harry Connick Jr. starrer “Chilled in Miami” for Gold Circle Films.
John Hamburg directs “I Love You” from a script he wrote about a man about to get married (Rudd) who seeks out a stranger to be his best man for the wedding. Jones will play the fiancee.
Shooting is scheduled to begin in early April.
“Chilled” centers on a Miami businesswoman who is transferred to rural Minnesota, and while she is there she re-evaluates her big-city values. Jones will play the best friend to Zellweger’s character.
Jones will star on Fox’s upcoming half-hour comedy “Unhitched,” from the Farrelly brothers. Her film credits include “Life in Flight,” “Brief Interviews With Hideous Men” and “Little Black Book.”
