Breaking Bad and Twilight Breaking Dawn Star Get a Job
Bryan Cranston, Anna Kendrick and Miles Teller are all looking to Get A Job. For their next project the trio, along with sever others are teaming up in a new CBS films project tentatively entitled Get A Job. The company, which recently announced the impressive ensemble cast, has gathered the who’s who of young actors in Hollywood today.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Get A Job is a multi-generational comedy about four recent college graduates who, after being thrust in to the real world, discover that their lofty expectations and the realities of adulthood are two very different things. Will Davis who will be played by Teller (Footloose), struggles through and entry level job and eventually finds his true calling. Kendrick (50/50) will play Jillian Steward, Will’s “type-A girlfriend who lives her life according to the strictest of plans.” Cranston, the season veteran has been cast as Roger Davis, Will’s father, who coincidentally is hunting for a job at the same time as his son.
Other big-names have been tossed in to the mix as well. Young actors such as Nick Braun (Prom), Alison Brie (Scream 4), Brandon T. Jackson (Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Superbad) and Jay Pharoah (Saturday Night Live) have all been lined up to co-star in the film. The screenplay was developed by Kyle Pennekamp and Scott Turpel. Directing will be Dylan Kidd of Roger Dodger and Children’s Hospital fame. Of the new film Kidd says, “We are making an emotionally honest comedy about the challenges that every generation faces in our rapidly changing world. We have assembled an extraordinary cast to make that happen.”
Despite the super-star cast I’m not sure how well a film about getting a job will fly with audiences. Getting a job is of course a natural rite of passage and a common experience among all people on this earth. This fairly normal obligation can be a source of material for film makers that us commoners can relate to, but does it really translate into a successful film? Hollywood seeks to fill every situation out there with a film people can relate to. Whether you’re experiencing loss of confidence, lack of skill, excitement over landing a job – your very first, or the job of your dreams, or simply trying to move up the corporate ladder there is a film to fit that circumstance. Being able to relate to a film doesn’t always mean audiences will love it.
Most of these Hollywood get-a-job type films have the happy fairy tale ending where everything works out, but what about the times when things don’t always work out? Not everyone gets the Erin Brockovich story or ending for that matter. But I guess Hollywood is there to pick us up and give us a good laugh and boost our spirits with their interpretations of getting a job.
Get A Job is scheduled to begin filming this March in its home town of Los Angeles.
