Megan Fox doesn't seem to be in a hurry to ditch her on-screen bad girl reputation.
After playing naughty characters in "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen" and "Jennifer's Body," brunette bombshell Megan Fox has now been cast as the other woman in an upcoming comedy starring "Mad Men" heartthrob Jon Hamm and "Saturday Night Live" cutup Kristen Wiig.
"Friends With Kids" tells the story of a couple (Jennifer Westfeldt and Adam Scott) who realize that children are taking a toll on the relationships of their friends (including Wiig and Hamm), so they decide to have a baby of their own but still date other people, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Fox, 24, will play a woman whom Scott, 37, dates.
Besides starring in the film, 40-year-old Westfeldt - who has been dating Hamm, 39, for 13 years - also penned the script, and according to executive producer Jake Kasdan, it sounds like a hit.
"Jen wrote one of the funniest and most original scripts I've read in a long time, the rare great generational character comedy," he said.
