At this point in their careers, both Paul Rudd and Tina Fey could tackle about any project they wanted to aside from starring in Marvel’s next superhero epic. (Though wouldn’t Rudd make for a nice Iron Man? Maybe not.) So it’s not too surprising to see them taking roles in Admission, an understated romantic comedy featuring Fey as a college admissions counselor with Rudd as the happy-go-lucky single father who comes into her life for… some reason. Like it matters, though. Here are two immensely likable comic actors, being likable and comic together alongside a solid repository of supporting actors like Wallace Shawn and Michael Sheen. Sure, the extended plot involving whether or not Fey reunites with her possibly-given-up-for-adoption son is sort of interesting, but it’s the pedigree that matters in an effort like this. (Also worth mentioning: It’s directed by the guy who did About a Boy, which should tickle your heart strings.) It’s out on March 8, 2013.
