Reese Witherspoon Passes on The Intern

And so, as Reese Witherspoon once inherited Nancy Meyers' The Intern from Tina Fey, now must another comedic actress receive it in turn from her. Variety reports that Witherspoon has passed on the Meyers comedy, and that Warner Bros. might approach Kristen Wiig with the starring role. If Kristen has ever imagined going head-to-head with Robert De Niro, now's the time to do it. It can be her Analyze This.
