Jason Sudeikis and Rose Byrne to Star in the Rom-Com ‘Tumbledown’


SNL’s Jason Sudeikis and Bridesmaids’ Rose Byrne are starring in a romantic comedy together. THR reports that the two have signed on to play the lead characters in Tumbledown about a young widow (Byrne) who falls for a New York writer (Sudeikis) when he comes to her rural hometown to investigate the death of her folk singer husband. You know, light Meg Ryan rom-com stuff. The movie comes from writer Desi Van Til and director Sean Mewshaw, who are both making their feature debuts on the project. Olivia Munn, Joe Manganiello, Blythe Danner, Michael McKean and Beau Bridges also star. Sudeikis is set to start filming Horrible Bosses 2 late this summer and Tumbledown is set to begin filming after that in October. While Sudeikis’s exit from SNL isn’t official yet, these two movies’ shooting schedules means he probably isn’t planning on coming back next season.
