Paul Rudd Joins Tina Fey to Make ‘Admission’ Your Favorite Movie Ever?

Tina FeyWhen Reese’s brought together the individual wonders that are chocolate and peanut butter, the result was something far beyond the sum of its parts—a true majesty. Paul Weitz’s developing movie Admission has the potential to be the cinematic version of Reese’s: aiming to combine the sensations of Tina Fey and Paul Rudd. Now that’s sweet.

Fey has been attached to Admission for some time; she is set to play a college admissions counselor who has complicated relationships with a student and a former schoolmate. The latter role, formerly considered by Owen Wilson, now might go to Rudd. The Rudd character comes into Fey’s life in adulthood, bringing with him some feelings and secrets from their younger days.
Producers are bringing the role to Rudd, but no word on whether or not he is interested. Although, a Fey-Rudd combination is something the world needs. Just picture it: “You got your Paul-colate in my Tina-butter!” It’s almost too perfect.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
