The Hollywood Reporter have glad tidings for fans of Mumblecore pin-up Greta Gerwig, as they announce that she’s won the lead role in Noah Baumbach‘s upcoming Greenburg. Even though I’d expect the box office ceiling for this one to be low enough that the light fixtures will be resting on the floor, it’s still a big leap into the lower leagues of ET-friendly fame for the actress. Poor girl.
According to the Reporter, her Greenburg co-star will be Ben Stiller (I think we already knew he was on board, come to think of it) while Production Weekly also throw Jennifer Jason Leigh into the mix. Wonder how she got the gig? Ahem.
