Mary to Test for New Jason Bateman Comedy, This Is Where I Leave You

Ah! Would love to see Mary starring in a Jason Bateman film! According to THR, Mary is on a short-list with other actresses to test this upcoming Monday on a new WB film called This Is Where I Leave You.

Based on the book by Jonathan Tropper, the film centers on a man (Bateman) whose father dies and tasks his dysfunctional family with one last request: to spend seven days following the funeral together under the same roof.

Most of the actresses (which include Ari Graynor, Isla Fisher, Zoe Saldana, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kathryn Hahn and Amy Adams), are reading for the part of Penny, the love that got away who works at her father’s company.

Hahn is reading for the part of Bateman’s wife, a woman who is having an affair with his boss.

Best of luck to Mary on Monday!! 🙂
