Megan Fox, Jon Hamm Team Up to Make ‘Kids’
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the former Transformers vixen and the Mad Men stud have signed on to co-star in the upcoming comedy Friends With Kids. The movie, which is scheduled for an April 2012 release, will focus on a pair of 30-something friends (Party Down’s Adam Scott and 24’s Jennifer Westfeldt, who also wrote the script) who decide to have a child together before dating other people in order to circumvent the pressures that parenthood can put on relationships.
Alas, moviegoers apparently won’t be treated to a Fox/Hamm hookup during the cinematic offering; Fox will play a woman who begins to date Scott’s character, while Hamm will portray the boyfriend of fellow cast member Kristen Wiig (Saturday Night Live.) On the plus side, it seems as though Fox might be ideally suited for the role, as she knows all about dating a guy with a child from a previous relationship.
