Judd Apatow Wants Eric Bana

CHUD is reporting that Eric Bana has been approached to play Clarke, Leslie Mann's boyfriend, in Judd Apatow's untitled third film which stars Seth Rogen and Adam Sandler as stand-up comedians.

At first glance Bana seems like a really odd choice for an Apatow comedy, better known for his roles in action and dramatic films. Apatow has said that his new film is more dramatic than his previous efforts (40-Year-Old-Virgin and Knocked Up), calling it "a hilarious drama". Sandler even recently admitted that the script is "very funny" but at the same time, "pretty heartbreaking."

Plus casting Bana fullfills an inside joke set-up by Seth Rogen's character in Knocked Up ("If any of us get laid tonight, it's because of Eric Bana in Munich.") Eric Bana in a Apatow Dramadey?  What do you think?
