This may be welcome news to people like me who have Jennifer Aniston fatigue. After receiving Golden Globe, Emmy, and SAG nominations for her title role in the canceled ABC sitcom Samantha, Who?, Christina Applegate is segueing once again from TV to film. She’s about to close a deal to join Owen Wilson, Jason Sudeikis, and Jenna Fischer in Hall Pass, the Farrelly brothers comedy for New Line. Applegate will play one of the wives who give a hall pass to their husbands allowing them to have sex with another woman without consequence. Written by Bobby Farrelly, Kevin Barnett, Peter Farrelly and Peter Jones, the pic began shooting this week in Atlanta. The film is being produced by Bobby Farrelly, Bradley Thomas, and Peter Farrelly with Peter Farrelly directing. Applegate also stars alongside Drew Barrymore, Justin Long, and Charlie Day in the upcoming comedy Going The Distance, also for New Line. She is repped by Management 360, CAA, and lawyer Steve Warren.
