Reese Witherspoon Will Be ‘The Beard’

Written by on August 7, 2012 

My hopes, expectations, and the like for a Reese Witherspoon romcom could generally be said to —

No, no, it’s best to stop right there. That sentence almost indicates any of those exist in the first place, and I shouldn’t be throwing faulty impressions out into the wild like that. Before any more of your precious time is wasted, it might be in your interest to know that she’ll be starring in The Beard, a Becca Greene-scripted comedy that the actress will back alongside Chernin Entertainment. [THR]

You could probably parse this out from the title, and that’s all there really is in the first place; Witherspoon will play “a beard,” the sort of woman hired by a gay man to hide their own sexual identity. This was the plot point on an episode of Seinfeld, and even they couldn’t make it work all that well.

Is there anything worthwhile in The Beard?
