Angelina Jolie: 'Silver Linings Playbook' Role?

Angelina Jolie‘s schedule might be getting a bit busier!

Mark Wahlberg is set to star in the comedy, which will be an adaptation of Matthew Quick‘s novel of the same name.

Synopsis: “Pat Peoples (Wahlberg) is down on his luck. The former high school history teacher has just been released from a mental institution and placed in the care of his mother.

    This will be a great news. I would love to see Angie in a comedy with Mark W. I know that comedy are not their specialty but they are both talented actors, they can do a great job if they are willing to. Good luck to both of them if they will both do it.

    More BS From MEGATWAT Jolie @ 06/08/2011 at 12:47 pm\
    This is only another of Jolie’s pitiful attempts to get some buzz going to help her collapsing crapola career
    oh, God, a brain dead gerbil on live support has more intelligence than you do. Angie is getting ready to film Cleopatra with David Fincher. you do know who he is don’t you? if you don’t, fool, Fincher only directed the Social Network; one of the best reviewed films last year. Angie is also going to be doing Salt two and now she may also do this project.. oh yeah, Angelina is still in the running for the role of Maleficent even though Tim Burton has left the project. now, troll, what is that nonsense about her “collapsing crapola career.”

    I just saw this on Mega4, so i must credit beverly hills whose post i got it from.
    But i just couldnt resist bringing it over here to reinforce something that most JP fans already know, so really, this is just for the education of the hags who luuuuuuuurve us so much that they cant stay away from JP threads.
    Check the look on the face of the man in the background who is staring googly eyed at Brad LOL. Do you know who that is? Yes! the very same big bad dirty dog steven huvane – jenny’s pitbull publicist.
    You notice he is not even aware of the presence of his client also in the background, right? He only has eyes for Brad, his secret passion.
    And therein, fans, lie the clue to the 6-year long media campaign against Angie, for taking Brad away – not from anustain, but taking Brad away from huvsie’s sight!!! Huvsie hates Angie with the passion of a million scorned f.a.g.g.o.t.s (no offence to any gay men here but you biitches could give lessons on how to be a relentless backstabbing biitch when you are thwarted).
    Jenny is just huvsie’s willing tool because she also has her reasons for wanting to take Angie down because Brad loves Angie and wants her and chased her around the world after he kicked anustain to the curb.
    When Brad kicked anustain to the curb, she not only lost her ‘golden couple’ status, and her marriage to ‘the sexiest man alive’ when everyone knows she is naturally fug, but her very A-list status was only because of Brad. And then she lost it all. So yeah, jenny feels justified in carrying out huvsie’s instructions for her passive-aggressive revenge campaign against Angie.
    But huvsie only used his willing tool, anustain, because he too wanted to hurt Angie for taking Brad out of anustain’s life, where huvsie was hoping he’d be able to see and speak with and ‘accidentally-on-purpose’ brush up against Brad, which is as much as he could hope for. And for six years now, huvsie has been without that hope.
    But he is stuck with trying to pass off the aging, ugly heffa anustain as a hot, sexy and desirable, in-demand young thing. But people are laughing at huvsie’s efforts now because they can see for themselves that theres no photoshop in real life and candid photos. And we are not all gullible idjits like the obese, ugly dumped biitches who are jenny’s fanbase.
    Repeat after me folks: Karma. Is. A. Biitch.

    @theresa: Angelina Jolie the highest paid actress( $20 Million a film) and the most sought after actress in Hollywood. She got $20 Million upfront for Salt just imagine what she will earn for Salt 2. Great year for JP’s Brad is being mentioned for GG’s for Moneyball and TOL(as well as Oscar Buzz). Angie’s directorial debut is been released in Dec for award consideration. Poor trolls are in agony. LOL

    Star tried to reach out to Heidi for comment, telling her that Justin and Jennifer had made their first public appearance as a couple, to which she replied, “I don’t want to know” before adding, “I have no comment.”
    Bullshite to the bolded part. This exact same story was in the Star magazine that come out LAST WEEK…BEFORE TICKY AND CHEATER BOY WERE SEEN TOGETHER AT THE MTV AFTER PARTY. Just when you almost give Star credit for getting a little something right…and one of the few times they can attribute a name to a quote…they have to go and lie about when they got the quote.

    Mark Wahlberg is not in Angelina league, beside he know for his cocky attitude, i don’t remember if he did a movie with Madonna a while back, when he said she look like beetle juice, don’t respect any man that talk about a woman

    All i meant to say the JP will be very busy and we will reap the rewards for all their hard work lol!

    Since when the hell has The Silver Linings Playbook been a comedy?? Seriously. the book is not funny.its dark, yes, but its not a comedy. its a drama, it deals with serious mental issues and violence, both domestic and in general, adultery, abuse. how is that funny? I thought Anne Hathaway was supposed to ahve been approaced? AJ does not fit with eeither of the two women in the book (one of whom is in it for all of a page and a half)
    I cry bull**, ouldnt be the first time soeones dropped her name to get some cred and press. can’t even get the genre of teh film right, and if its being made into a comedy, then its not the book. so sick of HW raping literature and then just changing it anyway to suit them

    @anonymous: you know she doesn’t work all of them at the same time right? rollyes.Being a barren is not a way of freedom you know. She can get all going with dicipline and a nicley planned schedule but first let be sure if it is a true story.

    @bizzy bee:

    Don’t sleep on Mark W. He may not be a big name as Angelina is but he has industry connections and credits that are impressive. You want his life story? The whole HBO series Entourage is his biography. He’s the creator of that show. Boogie nights was great. Wasn’t he nominated for The Departed instead of Leo Dicaprio? He also knows Brad and Angelina so this may not be so far fetched. I can’t see him doing comedy though unless it’s like a Entourage type comedy full of cussing and frat boy jokes and bathroom humor.

    So, Huave set up MANiston with Brad so he can be closer to Brad. All this time, I thought he was setting them up because he thought they would made a great couple. I guess not. It was all for him.

    Angelinajolie'sfansareinsane Says:


    Yeah, she bought an award mostly voted for by the military whom are mostly stationed overseas. Okeedokee, if that allows you to sleep at night. By the way, Jennifer doesn’t have to buy awards but Jolieho sure does have to buy Golden Globe nominations.

    Right, that’s why everyone knows about Salt 2 when the script hasn’t even been written yet. Gotcha!

    Why did Ducienna leave mega 4? 2 answers beveryhills and Guli, Dulciena is the one with all the news and interesting posts. She’s not all about maniston. Some of brad fans do not want to acknowledge maniston has moved on because then they won’t have someone to attack 24/7. because you know “Brad is soooooo hot”

    @Passing Through:

    Wow, Marky Mark who’s production company produces the award winning show “Entourage” has to use Brad’s name (who can barely get his own movies financed) to get his movie done even though the movie has been in the works for 10 years. Can you really be this stupid?
