Leslie Mann Replaces Jennifer Aniston in 'The Comedian'

Leslie Mann is replacing Jennifer Aniston in her role in The Comedian opposite Robert de Niro.

An insider tells The Wrap of Jennifer, “they couldn’t quite make the dates work and her schedule didn’t allow her to commit to filming.”

Leslie Mann‘s impeccable timing and ability to inject drama into comedy make her the right choice for the film. We are so excited to welcome her to the cast of ‘The Comedian,’” producer Courtney Solomon said in a statement.

Jennifer originally signed on for the movie back in November.

    Leslie Mann looks cheap.
    Courtney Solomon is cheap (sleaze) too.

    Good for Jen.

    I don’t really dislike Leslie Mann, but it seems like the only comedy persona she has is neurotic but lovable. I’m actually curious to see if she can depart from that and do a darker, more dramatic comedy.

    Jennifer’s schedule? Hahahahaaaaaaa! Hmmmm, that felt good.

  • Mayette de Guzman

    Defnitely a downgrade for the movie.

    I am sure that they wd have vetted her and made sure – only time will tell – I think lots of actresses eventually try and move onto drama or different genres – so heres hoping leslie mann will do justice to her part – kudos to leslie

    I’d rather watch Leslie Mann than Jennifer Aniston.

    You’re right, Leslie Mann is always the second role like the best friend of the star of the film.

  • jilly

    Leslie is in no way the same level as Jen. Too bad, it would’ve been great to see Jen with Robert DiNiro!

    Change your diaper baby.

  • America’s Sweetheart

    Jen is in such high demand these days..So she couldn’t make the film..She is busy trying to be a wife & start a family..There will be plenty of other movies in Jen’s future…This girl has it all & then some!!!

  • America’s Sweetheart

    That is one ugly baby..

  • Joy B Angie

    Jen makes 2-3 movies every year.
    She needs some rest –
    she wants to look good on the Oscar !

    De Niro may kiss Leslie Mann’s ear.
    Or something else.
