Long Bares All For Applegate In New Movie

21 December 2009 5:26 PM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Justin Long is set to bare all in new movie Going The Distance, according to his co-star Christina Applegate, who got to see everything the actor has to offer.

The pair team up in two forthcoming films; the romantic comedy about a couple in a long distance relationship, and kids' film Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel.

And Applegate insists the two pictures couldn't be more different.

She tells the Belfast Telegraph, "It's called Going The Distance and it's very dirty. It's the polar opposite of Alvin And The Chipmunks. These people will not be able to go see that."

And she promises there's lots on offer for female fans in the raunchy comedy: "I saw a lot of Justin Long over the summer, I did - you'll see the movie and you'll know why I said that." »

Justin Long Joins Conspirator

14 October 2009 4:17 AM, PDT | Screenrush | See recent Screenrush news »

Word reaches via The Hollywood Reporter that Justin Long has joined Robin Wright Penn and James McAvoy in The Conspirator, a historical drama set just after the Civil War that will be directed by Robert Redford.

The film tells the story of Mary Surrat, played by Wright Penn, a Confederate sympathiser who is tried as a conspirator in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Colonel Frederick Aiken, played by McAvoy, reluctantly agrees to help defend Surrat before a military tribunal. Long is onboard to play Col. Aiken's best friend, a man who lost a limb and grew a conscience in the Civil War.

The historical drama marks a first for Long, who is typically cast in more comedic roles, such as his turn in Die Hard 4.0 as the comic counterweight to Bruce Willis' John McClane, or his first role, in the successful Star Trek spoof, Galaxy Quest.

Jason Sudeikis Is Going The Distance

5 July 2009 11:03 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Saturday Night Live star Jason Sudeikis could have spent his summer hiatus from the show in any number of ways: playing Xbox Live (we have it on good authority that he’s often to be found on there, killing 12 year-olds in a purely metaphorical sense, of course). Rearranging his stamp collection, should he have one. Trying to work out what, in the name of all that is holy and right in this world, made Burt Reynolds agree to pose for this photo.But instead he seems to have decided to cram in a bucketload of movies instead. And good for him.The 33 year-old, one of the funniest cast members on the show, has already started work on Bounty Hunter, the Jennifer Aniston-Gerard Butler action-comedy, and now he’s signed on to join Drew Barrymore and Justin Long in their new comedy, Going The Distance.The movie revolves around »

Charlie Day, one of the stars and creators of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," and Christina Applegate have joined Drew Barrymore and Justin Long in New Line's romantic comedy "Going the Distance."

Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot are producing via their Offspring Entertainment banner, and Nanette Burstein is directing.

Day, who writes and executive produces as well as acts in "Philadelphia" with Glenn Howerton and Rob McElhenney, is one of the few from the show to jump into movies, though that appears due to time constraints more than lack of opportunity, given the demands of the writing, shooting and editing their show.

The trio plans to begin writing the show as early as November, shoot in the spring and summer, »

Drew Barrymore to star with Justin Long in Going the Distance

31 March 2009 10:33 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Variety reports that Drew Barrymore has signed on to star opposite Justin Long in New Line’s romantic comedy Going the Distance. The duo recently starred together, as part of the ensemble cast, in the successful film He’s Just Not That Into You.

Geoff Latulippe wrote the screenplay for Going the Distance which revolves around a young couple as they deal with a long distance relationship. The film will be directed by Nanette Burnstein and is being produced by Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot.

Barrymore and Long have dated in real life, which could add some depth to their on-screen characters. On a more personal note, as someone who has been through a long distance relationship, I can see the huge comedic potential in the situation.
