The Hollywood Reporter Jones and Deschanel have been cast in My Idiot Brother alongside Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks and Emily Mortimer. Rudd plays the lead role as the goofy brother to Banks, Deschanel and Mortimer.
Deschanel is a bisexual whose flakiness and lies are getting in the way of moving forward with her caring, responsible girlfriend (Jones).
It's not how I imagined their onscreen team-up but this is what we get. The film centers on the relationship between Rudd's character, his sisters and their over-bearing mother. My Idiot Brother is slated for a 2011 release.
