In the kind of pairing of funny and handsome, but approachable white movie stars that the bulk of slash-fiction is built of, Paul Rudd and Steve Coogan will play a married couple in An Ideal Home. The film, written and directed by Andrew Fleming (The Craft), is a dramedy about the pair who “live an extravagant life” that gets mixed up when Coogan’s long-lost grandson shows up out of the blue. Coogan is a celebrity, while Rudd is his “more hesitant partner and sidekick.” If you wanted a gay blend of The Trip and This is 40 (and who doesn’t, honestly?), this may be the film for you.
