In today’s “Where Are They Now?” news, a new trailer for Judd Apatow’s “sort-of sequel to Knocked Up” has been released featuring all-star hilarity vets Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, Jason Segel, Melissa McCarthy, Lena Dunham, John Lithgow, and… Megan Fox?!? It appears Apatow has cast the 26-year-old brunette bombshell as a 26-year-old brunette bombshell who is understandably over-eager to find any reason at all to strip down to her underwear.
Here’s just Megan’s brief appearance in her briefs (sorry about the little ad you have to close out):
40-year-old Debbie, played by Judd Apatow’s wife Leslie Mann, seems as enamored by Megan’s pert assets as a man of pretty much any age would be. “Are those real?” she asks as she touches them with her finger in the same manner one would poke little pink unicorns.
“Yeah! I’m just young.” Megan’s character explains.
But before you get the wrong idea about the film (no, it’s not just a vehicle for Megan Fox lingerie scenes), check out the full trailer which seems to suggest this will be a HUGE blockbuster once it hits the big screen on December 21:
That opening dialogue is priceless…
“This sounds horrible, but do you ever wondered what it would be like if you and your wife were separated by something bigger? Like death? Like her death?”
“I have given it a fair amount of thought.”
“Not in a painful way, but just like a gentle floating off.”
“It’s gotta be peaceful, I mean this is the mother of your children!”
“And then the new wife would would be great!”
“God, I can’t wait to meet my second wife! I hope she likes me better than this one.”
Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow’s real life children, Maude Apatow and Iris Apatow, return as Leslie’s character’s children in the movie, reprising their Knocked Up roles. Jason Segel, who might as well be a member of the Apatow family after their numerous projects together beginning with Freaks and Geeks, is also back. Sadly, Judd bud Seth Rogen isn’t listed in the credits, so apparently his lead Ben Stone character from Knocked Up will not be returning, and neither will Katherine Heigl’s Alison Scott.
And just in case you missed it, here is the first official trail for This Is 40, released a few months ago:
