I was looking for any excuse to post the “Paul Rudd’s Computer” Tim & Eric video (attached below), and now I have it.   That’s because Judd Apatow is producing a script co-written by Rudd in which Jennifer Aniston is attached to star.  Hey, Hollywood Reporter, can you work the title into a lazy play on words for me?

Universal is experiencing some “Wanderlust.”

The studio has picked up a comedy project with Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd attached to star. Judd Apatow will produce.  Rudd will write the script with Ken Marino and David Wain, who will also direct. Rudd, Marino and Wain will also produce.  The story line follows a married couple who tries to escape modern society and ends up in a hippie commune.  Universal hopes to start production in the fall.

David Wain directed Wet Hot American Summer and Role Models, which he also co-wrote with Rudd and Ken Marino– who also stars in the criminally under the radar Party Down.  I guess what I’m saying is that my comedy boner is all ready to go, all you have to do is rub it a little.  Oh right, Jennifer Aniston.  Yeah, she’s usually one note and tends to play every comedy scene as either exasperated or shrill.  But that’s just how women are, isn’t it?  In my experience, their only emotions are “shrill”, “exasperated”, “unconscious,” and “shoppin'”.
