Kevin Bacon Joins the New Comedy From Steve Carell

Kevin Bacon has signed up to play the lover of an adulterous wife in an as-yet-untitled comedy. Written by Dan Fogelman and helmed by I Love You Phillip Morris directors John Requa and Glenn Ficarra, the new comedy will star the always-hilarious Steve Carell as a lovable loser married to cheating wife Julianne Moore. Carell playing a lovable loser? C’mon Steve, branch out a bit!

The Notebook‘s Ryan Gosling plays a life coach who helps Carell to sort his life out, and Emma Stone (the hot chick from Zombieland) will play his daughter.
