Ever since Rashida Jones, daughter of Quincy Jones, appeared in The Office, I’ve been curious to see how her career would evolve.  She was funny, charming and absolutely gorgeous; definitely the perfect combination for a successful career. Well, after appearing as the girlfriend of Paul Rudd in I Love You, Man, she has taken the step towards becoming a leading actress. Rashida Jones is to star as the lead female role in the new film Celeste and Jesse Forever. Not only is she starring in the film, but she is also the co-writer along with Will McCormack.

Fox Atomic has picked up the script for the new romantic film. The plot of the film is about a divorcing couple who has decided to try to keep their friendship intact while seeing other people. This could definitely be a cute, entertaining movie  The real question is whether she is the actress that will be able to capture the audience for an entire movie.

What do you think of Rashida Jones? Are you curious to see a movie like this?  Do you think she will be one of Hollywood’s next leading ladies?
