Nancy Meyers hires former assistant for new movie

It pays to work for filmmaker Nancy Meyers – the director has just cast her former assistant in her new movie. Jason Orley was invited to audition for a key role when Meyers failed to find an actor she liked and now he’ll be acting opposite Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro in comedy The Intern.
Orley worked for Meyers while she was making 2009 movie It’s Complicated. The Intern will mark his acting debut, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
In the film, Hathaway’s character runs an online fashion site, where De Niro’s 70-year-old widower lands a job as an intern.
Rene Russo and Nat Wolff will also appear in the film.
