Angelina Jolie: 'Silver Linings Playbook' Role?

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

Later this week, the 36-year-old megawatt actress is scheduled to meet with director David O. Russell for his latest project, The Silver Linings Playbook, JustJared.com has learned exclusively.

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. Not one to be discouraged, Pat believes he has only been on the inside for a few months – rather than four years – and plans on reconciling with his estranged wife.”

Angelina may also be reprising her role as Evelyn Salt in the sequel to the action thriller Salt.

    .
    Ticky’s hen’s are in denial. They refuse to acknowledge that Ticky was on the down low with Cheater Boy for weeks – probably months. They keep insisting he and the girlfriend were already broken up – but I found a photo of them from April 25th looking very couple-y.
    .
    Also, the tabs HAVE been covering this story, they just haven’t made it the cover story. Ticky-the-ho doesn’t sell as well as Ticky-the-victim-of-that-horrible-brother-kissing-blood-wearing-baby-collecting-man-stealing-humanitarian-do-gooder-mommy-sex-kitten crap does, so they’re just waiting until they can come up with an angle to blame this all on Angie before they slap it on the cover. Maybe they can claim Ticky had a psychotic break and is now channeling the woman who stole her husband…except without the children, the man, the humanitarian work, the boffo fox office numbers, the world traveling, friendships with world leaders, etc. stuff…

    joshuahorowitz Yup, Jessica Chastain continues to be awesome. She just hobbled in & out of here–she’s headed to her 1st late night show spot on Fallon!

    Here is one of Josh’s (the guy who wrote the tweet above) interviews with Angie (where she says “it’s for Brad”):

    @Passing Through:

    LMAO! @ your scenario, PT. She’ll be having to get her deviated septum fixed again because, ya know, it was botched the last time.

    And yeah, the hens are twisting themselves into pretzels trying to rationalize what FT and cheater boy did to his GF. Who left town to come back and find out he’s in L.A. f*cking FT. Their rationalization is that they weren’t married. Forget that they were together for as long as Brad and FT were together. So, Brad and Angelina are less than a year away from being common law man and wife in many states. They’re saying when you get married you make a promise to be committed to only each other. Well, when you’re in a supposed monogamous relationship, isn’t that an implied promise.

    And they keep bringing God into it. Brad doesn’t believe in God, he believes in a higher power. So, you know God wasn’t part of his wedding vows.

    So, in the hens minds, it’s OK to cheat, as long as you’re not married.

    See, 2+2=5 in their world.

    Hi FALP, yes, I clicked on the link. It’s difficult to believe that he was an orphan and I’m not entirely sure how he got an education. If his story is true, then it sounds as if he has had a sad and lonely life thus far. If his story is true, then of course, I’d be very happy for him!

    ROTFLMAO!

    O2, you got it! My rationalization for them is that they are certifiably insane.
    .
    They love to pretend they are religious – just like they try to pretend they are all such friendly and nice people – while simultaneously concocting the most disgusting – and usually sexually oriented – fiction about Angie and/or Brad. And the kids for good measure. They live in an alternate universe with their own factoids.
    .
    Fact is this new guy has already shown what a sleaze he is. From the get go. Seems like both of them are desperate for different things and they’ll likely end up hating each other and going to war in the tabloids. Won’t that be fun?

    Pitt, Jolie Contribute $500,000 to Joplin Recovery

    June 10, 2011

    Through their foundation, Springfield native Brad Pitt and partner Angelina Jolie on Friday contributed $500,000 to the Community Foundation of the Ozarks, to bolster the recovery effort in Joplin.

    “Rebuilding after a disaster is a long process,” said Brian Fogle, President of the Community Foundation of the Ozarks. “As our neighbors in Joplin begin to deal with the devastation, this donation from the Jolie-Pitt Foundation gives them the hope and confidence they will need to rebuild their lives, homes and community.”

    The money will be used to support mid- and long-term rebuilding efforts in the storm-ravaged city.

    “With the devastating loss of thirty percent of the city, the Joplin community faces great challenges ahead. Having spent much of my childhood there, I know these people to be hardworking, humble and especially resilient,” said Brad Pitt. “The locally based Community Foundation of the Ozarks will be working shoulder to shoulder with these Joplin residents for the long haul as they rebuild their lives. We, too, hope to further help with these rebuilding efforts,” Pitt said.

    Added Jolie: “Our hearts go out to the families in Joplin who have lost so much.”

    The CFO fund now stands at more than $1 million.
