Say you like two television shows. And say you find out the stars of those two television shows are going to be in a movie together. And say that one of those stars has officially been named the hottest hottie on the planet by all of lesbiankind (otherwise known as the AfterEllen.com Hot 100). You’d think you were dreaming, right?
Dream no more. Tina Fey (our No. 1 with a bullet) and Steve Carell (list ineligible, but still fairly rad) are teaming up for the new romantic comedy Date Night. The stars of 30 Rock and The Office are set to play a married couple who find their routine date night becoming much more than just dinner and a movie.
Director Shawn Levy told Variety what attracted him to the project:
I wanted to do a relatable, grounded character comedy about marriage and the lengths we go to preserve the spark. Tina and Steve are smart and relatable, and the tone of their comedy perfectly fits this film.
Liz Lemon and Michael Scott doing anything to “preserve the spark” sounds like guaranteed funny to me. In fact when it comes to hetero-couplings, this is one of the potentially funniest around. The only way it could possibly be better is if the TV shows in question were 30 Rock and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Tina and Lena preserving the spark together? Now that really would be a dream.
