Jacki Weaver Accepts Jason Segel’s Engagement


When we saw Jacki Weaver during Oscar weekend, the Best Supporting Actress nominee for Animal Kingdom excitedly told us, "I’ve been offered three films and three television series, and I’ll be working out what my options are in the next few weeks. I think I’m going to have to come live here for a while, which would be absolutely fabulous!" Looks like she's picked her follow-up: Deadline reports that the Australian actress has joined the cast of Five-Year Engagement, starring Jason Segel, Emily Blunt, Alison Brie, and Chris Pratt. We're so pleased with Weaver's success in the States that we could kiss her on the lips (except that she already made that totally weird and creepy in Animal Kingdom). [Deadline]
