Megan Fox in talks for 'Knocked Up' sequel

After playing a sexpot in a string of movies, Megan Fox is getting ready to bare her funny side. According to Variety, the actress is in talks to star in a sequel to Judd Apatow's 2007 comedy "Knocked Up."

Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann, who played bickering couple Pete and Debbie in the first film, will headline the follow up. "It is just a story from Pete and Debbie's current life," Apatow told HitFlix. "People really responded to their characters and problems. I felt like there was a lot of ground I could explore with them."

Fox will play a supporting role, and reports that comic legend Albert Brooks is also set to appear in the film as Pete's dad.

"Knocked Up" starred Katherine Heigl as a career woman who gets pregnant by a slacker (Seth Rogen) after a one-night stand. Apatow has said that both Heigl and Rogen may appear in the sequel, which is slated to begin shooting in July for a June 2012 release.

    She's not hot...she's just plain nasty. I bet some BOYS would like to bang someone as dirty as her. She looks wasted most of the time. This girl is just a celebrity, NOT AN ACTRESS coz you need to be able to ACT in order to be called an ACTRESS!

    I agree with you Superhiro. She is average at best. She just isnt that hot. Young guys that are in heat really like her but then they would like a pinewood tree. She just isnt that special. In a few years everyone will be sayng Meagan Who ? Im not meaning to be rude but that is kind of the truth.

    I always thought Megan Fox's "hotness" was overrated. A lot of women can be that attractive with buttloads of hollywood airbrushing and makeup.

    Kinda sick of Apatow's movies now. Kinda sick of Seth Rogen as well.

    I agree. Stunning! I loved the original, I'm beyond thrilled that they are making a sequel! Katherine Heigl famously blasted the movie, saying how the women were stereotyped as "humourless shrews". I am a fan of hers, and hope Apatow and her can work together again to put her in the film. I love Seth Rogen, and I'd love to see him reprise his role as Ben.
    Can't wait to see how this all unfolds. Also, great casting Albert Brooks as Pete's dad- genius! I wonder if Megan's character will be similar to Jessica Alba's in Little Fockers. Seems they will play on her looks and give her some funny stuff to do/say.

      I know Megan Fox isn't the best actress...but MY GOD she's gorgeous! Sounds superficial I know, but looks do matter to a certain extent....

      I never said anything about her acting or looks, I just stated the FACT that she is a communist. Quit heisting my threads, unless of course your a communist and in conspiricy with Megan.

      Yea! She's so gorgeous and therefore entertaining to look at, even if she's not the best actress.
