Samberg With Faris In What's Your Number
And Zachary Quinto's in talks

Andy Samberg has signed on to join Anna Faris and Chris Evans in What's Your Number?, a new R-rated relationships comedy that also has Zachary Quinto in talks to join the cast. This will be a reunion of sorts for Samberg and Faris, both of whom voiced characters in the excellent Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, but marks their first live-action collaboration. Oh, and you may now spend a quick moment geeking out at the prospect of having Spock and Captain America in the same film; then we'll continue.

Faris will play a woman who starts to panic, on sleeping with her 20th man, that she's had too many relationships and missed Mr Right along the way. Cue soul-searching, revisiting old boyfriends and no doubt many comedy escapades. Evans will play her womanising next-door neighbour (who we're guessing she'll end up with because, well, dreamy) with Samberg and possibly Quinto as ex-boyfriends. And yes, with shooting due to begin in May this is in no danger of colliding with either Captain America or the long-mooted Star Trek 2.

Mark Mylod's taking the directors chair after a long career in TV (everything from The Fast Show to Cold Feet to Entourage, so he knows funny) and it's all based on Karyn Bosnak's book 20 Times A Lady.

What. Faris is cute but this movie holds no appeal whatsoever. The little songs Samberg does are fine but he can't act well enough even for this type of film. More

Bit of a low bar for this day and age isn't it? It's not like Faris is 23 or something. It would be nice to see her in something decent. More
