Variety reports Brie Larson is in talks for the Judd Apatow—directed, Amy Schumer—written comedy Trainwreck. Larson would be joining Schumer and Bill Hader in a movie about a woman trying to put her life back together. Though she broke out with a critically acclaimed turn in Short Term 12, Larson has occasionally found herself in comedies, including roles in 21 Jump Street and Community. There's no word on exactly whom her character will be, but come on, it's got to be the best friend, right? If you were casting a movie, wouldn’t she seem like a supportive yet fun best friend forever? (Or at least for your 20s.)
