Tsr Exclusive: ‘Celeste and Jesse Forever’ Interview with writing/acting duo Rashida Jones and Will McCormack

Written by actress Rashida Jones (I Love You, Man) and her actor friend Will McCormack (Boiler Room), Celeste and Jesse Forever is an unusual out-of-love story about two people who try to maintain their best friendship despite being unofficially divorced. Although the two writers were never married in real life, the film (directed by Lee Toland Krieger) is inspired by their own relationship, with Andy Samberg playing Will’s “part” opposite Rashida Jones as Celeste. McCormack is in the film as a drug-dealing friend of Celeste’s named “Skillz.”

In an exclusive interview, I sat down with the amicable writing duo for a chat about their first film. Amongst many things, we talked about their first produced project, the key to good stoned acting, and we also had a very real conversation towards the end about Jones’ perspective on platonic relationships.

Celeste and Jesse Forever opens in Chicago theaters on August 10.
