Cobie Smulders Finds Starbuck
She'll be part of the comedy

Cobie Smulders Finds Starbuck

She may not have had loads to do in The Avengers, but Cobie Smulders is definitely benefitting from the exposure she got in the superhero movie. The actress has scored a few jobs since appearing as S.H.I.E.L.D’s Maria Hill and has just entered negotiations for her latest gig, Vince Vaughn comedy Starbuck.

No, it's not a biopic focusing on a member of the Battlestar Galactica crew. The movie, a remake of Ken Scott’s Canadian comedy – which features the director back on shot-calling duty – will see Vaughn as a middle-aged bloke who suddenly discovers that he’s fathered 533 children from his days earning easy cash at a sperm bank.

Trouble is, a big group of the kids suddenly want to meet him, and begin legal proceedings, leaving our hero in a quandary as to whether he’ll reveal his identity.

Smulders would play his pregnant girlfriend, who is understandably worried about the impact of the case. Chris Pratt, meanwhile, is already aboard as his lawyer.

While she’s back on her day job shooting sitcom How I Met Your Mother, Smulders has squeezed a couple of other movies into her summer hiatus, including a role on Lasse Halstrom’s romantic drama Safe Haven and David Wain’s new comedy They Came Together.
