You know what they say: Keep your friends close and your fellow Bachelorette suitors closer! As E! News exclusively reported, Ben Higgins, the third runner-up in Kaitlyn Bristowe's season, is producers' pick to be the next Bachelor. While the 26-year-old software salesman has yet to sign on the dotted line, a source close to the ABC franchise told us it's "a done deal." But Ben might want to sign sooner rather than later because when we caught up with some of the guys, including Ben Zorn and Chris "Cupcake" Strandburg, at the Men Tell All special, they revealed to us that they would definitely consider taking over for Chris Soules' as the next Bach...

Deterred by serial cheating and sex addiction in their past, the pair decide to keep their relationship strictly platonic – but can they really avoid temptation?
Sleeping with Other People opens on September 11 in the Us. A UK release is yet to be set. »
Let's face it, guys and gals: the romantic comedy has had its ups and downs over the years. We were cruising there for awhile in the '80s and '90s, back when folks like Tom Hanks, Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan single-handedly carried the entire genre, churning out rom-com classics left and right. But then we wanted more -- we wanted romantic stories that were filthier, funnier and took daring risks. The kind of stuff that was dorkishly relatable when it comes to our evolving modern world. Enter Sleeping with Other People, a new rom-com from writer-director Leslye Headland (Bachelorette) who's slowly proving herself to be one of the great up-and-coming female voices in big-screen comedy. Her stuff is a little raunchy and R-rated, but it's honest and...

It’s about time that Community‘s Alison Brie got her big break. I was appalled to see how under-utilized (and despicably objectified) she was in this spring’s Get Hard, but this fall’s Sleeping with Other People should finally introduce cinephiles to her real comic gifts. Pairing the actress with Jason Sudeikis seems like a thoroughly winning prospect, and based on the first trailer for the irreverent pic, romantic-comedy fans might be about to get a much-needed kick in the teeth.
Brie stars as Lainey, a long-time sex addict who reconnects with an old, also sex-addicted friend (Jason Sudeikis) to whom she lost her virginity in college. Determined to break their respective cycles, the two vow to be platonic friends and never sleep together, which only gets trickier when the cynical pair develop unexpected affection for one another.

Brie plays a serial cheater, while Sudeikis is a womanizer in the romantic comedy. The characters first have a fling in college, then rekindle their relationship when they run into each other more than a decade later at a 12-step program for sex addicts.
“The guy I lost my virginity to was at my sex addicts meeting,” Brie admits to a friend.
Leslye Headland (“Bachelorette”) directs from her own script. IFC bought North American rights to the movie following its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January. Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Sidney Kimmel and Jessica Elbaum are producing, while Jim Tauber, Carla Hacken and Matt Berenson are exec producing.

Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis star as relationship phobics in the indie comedy Sleeping with Other People. The pair play Lainey and Jake, serial cheaters who reconnect twelve years after they last hooked up. Acknowledging their failure at monogamy, the two make a pact to be just friends, but their increasing attraction to one another throws a wrench into their plans to keep it out of the bedroom.
The comedy was a hit when it debuted at the Sundance Film Festival with comparisons to a modern-day When Harry Met Sally… popping up in the film’s buzz. A romcom for the Tinder age, the first trailer for Sleeping with Other People shows us that sharp-witted dialogue and some heartfelt humour are in store for the cast which also includes Adam Scott, Natasha Lyonne, and Amanda Peet.
The comedy pedigree doesn’t stop with the cast. Will Ferrell is a producer »

Leslye Headland has described her Bachelorette follow-up Sleeping With Other People as "When Harry Met Sally, but with assholes," which means that instead of Meg Ryan faking an orgasm, we've got Jason Sudeikis pleasuring a bottle of green tea. That scene's not in this trailer — can't give away that kind of genius for free — but there are still plenty of other sex jokes from your favorite rom-com stalwarts. You'll never eat an avocado the same way again. »

The first trailer has dropped for Sleeping With Other People, an upcoming romantic comedy from Bachelorette director and About Last Night screenwriter Leslye Headland. Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie star as, respectively, "a good-natured womanizer and a serial cheater who form a platonic relationship that helps reform them in ways, while a mutual attraction sets in," and the film also...

Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie are the stars of Sleeping With Other People, an unconventional romantic comedy from Bachelorette director Leslye Headland. The two play old flames who run into each other after 12 years . . . at a Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous meeting. Acknowledging they both have some pretty series relationship issues, they pledge to stay friends. Obviously, it wouldn't be a romantic comedy if that was the end of the story. Natasha Lyonne, Adam Scott, and Amanda Peet all costar in the film, which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival. It's opening in limited release on Aug. 21! »
Read More: Sundance: 'Bachelorette' Director Leslye Headland on Incredible Sex and Why Directing is a Female Act Writer-director Leslye Headland first showed a knack for mixing raunchy comedy with emotional heart in her 2012 debut "Bachelorette," starring Rebel Wilson and Kirsten Dunst. She's continuing the trend in "Sleeping with Other People," a rom-com starring Jason Suedikis and Alison Brie that puts a new spin on the phrase "friends with benefits." In the movie, Jake (Sudeikis) and Lainey (Brie) have been incapable of holding down a relationship, both finding insatiable needs to sleep with other people. When the two run into each other, they rekindle a flame that started when they lost their virginities to one another during a one night stand back in college. They begin a friendship and swear off sex as to not screw things up, though the relationship obviously proves difficult. "Sleeping with Other People" also stars Jason. »

"For the first time, I'm a little bit optimistic you might not become that creepy guy." IFC Films has debuted the first trailer for Sleeping with Other People, a Sundance comedy that was one of our favorites of this festival earlier this year. Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie star as two compulsive cheaters who end up in a relationship, but will it work out from them? This actually looks really good, don't skip it. Sleeping with Other People is the follow-up from Bachelorette filmmaker Leslye Headland, and it seems to be a very big improvement. Adam Scott, Amanda Peet & Natasha Lyonne also star. Ethan wrote in his review from Sundance that it's "one of the most entertaining and honest love stories of the past 10 years." Check it out. Here's the first trailer for Leslye Headland's Sleeping with Other People, direct from IFC's YouTube: Synopsis: Can two serial cheaters get a second chance at love? »

The first Sleeping with Other People trailer has gone online, and you can already tell it’s hiding the good stuff. The premise revolves around two old friends Jake (Jason Sudeikis) and Lainey (Alison Brie) who have become sex addicts, and decide to rely on each other by keeping their relationship platonic. Their plan becomes more difficult as their affection for each other grows. That’s the sweetness the trailer presents with only a couple hints at the raunchy, abrasive humor director Leslye Headland delivered with her first film, Bachelorette. At Sundance, she described the movie as “When Harry Met Sally with assholes,” and that’s the film I want to see, especially after checking out Adam’s positive review. I don’t mind that that the trailer is burying the dirty jokes; they’ll be even more surprising when I end up checking out the film later this year. »

As relationships in the 21st century become more fluid, elastic and complicated, Hollywood has zeroed in on the fuck buddy concept. 2010 brought the concept in hard and fast with "No Strings Attached" and "Friends With Benefits" and while the Sundance indie “Sleeping With Other People” does sound like a riff on a similar subject, despite being raunchier than both, it’s actually kind of different. Directed and written by Leslye Headland, the writer/director behind the bawdy ladies comedy “Bachelorette,” the movie centers on a good-natured womanizer and a serial cheater who form a platonic relationship that helps reform them in ways, while a mutual attraction sets in. Starring Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis, the film was warmly received at Sundance—read our review— earlier this year and then was swiftly picked up by IFC Films. Here’s the official synopsis: Years after impulsively losing their virginity to each other in college, »

Sorry, Chris Harrison didn't make the guest list! The Affair's Colin Donnell married actress Patti Murin on Saturday, June 20 — with a Bachelorette twist! The couple took part in a hilarious Bachelorette spoof during their reception, which was hosted by wedding guest Andrew Rannells. "If you know my sister at all, you'll know about her insane obsession with all things The Bachelor," Murin wrote via Facebook on Saturday. "The wedding would not have been complete without a final rose ceremony hosted by Chris Harrison a.k.a. Andrew Rannells!" // [...] »
★☆☆☆☆ American playwright turned writer-director Leslye Headland received mild praise for debut feature Bachelorette (2012), which saw a trio of women asked to be bridesmaids to a former victim of their school bullying. Her sophomore effort, Sleeping with Other People (2015), is an unfortunately hideous affair. Toplined by two skilled comedic actors who both deserve more than the trite script awards them, the crudity builds throughout, resulting in a film that's deeply unpleasant. Jake (Jason Sudeikis) and Lainey (Alison Brie) lose their virginity to one another when the latter breaks into Columbia University and strikes up an unexpected bond with Jake.

According to social media posts, the wedding (that featured guests Stephen Amell and Andrew Rannells) had a few moments that could feel like a Bachelor and Bachelorette episode. Don't worry, »
Wiig stars as Alice Klieg, a psychiatric patient who could not be more in need of her meds, but quits taking them. When she does, her days are spent in something like a fugue of self-obsession and rigid routine. She’s addicted to Oprah, almost oblivious to the existence of other people as beings in their own right, and socially inept in a sense that could make the turn of phrase a devastating insult to others.
When Alice wins the lottery, to the tune of over $80 million, she decides to foot the bill for her own television show that’s sort of like Oprah, if Oprah spent her entire show talking about herself. She also decides that she doesn’t really »
