Is Emily Blunt “about to be offered” a role opposite Jason Segel in his gestating romantic comedy “Five-Year Engagement” from director Nicholas Stoller? Possibly and all signs point to yes. Especially since Blunt was just added to the cast of Segel's "The Muppets" also co-written by Stoller. Evidently they're fans as they offered her the role of Jackie Q in “Get Him To The Greek,” but the British thespian had to pass due to obligations for Fox's "Gulliver’s Travels" (which Segel not-so-coincidentally co-starred in).

"The Adjustment Bureau" was a film that always held a lot of promise. Based, like "Blade Runner" and "Total Recall," on a story by legendary sci-fi author Philip K Dick, it marked the directorial debut of "The Bourne Ultimatum" writer George Nolfi, and featured a top-notch cast, led by Matt Damon and Emily Blunt, with John Slattery, Anthony Mackie, Terence Stamp and Shohreh Aghdashloo joining them.

You Know, Like Shortly And Stuff...Believe us, we know. This is about as bottom of the barrel scraping as it gets in terms of offer stories and we hope it isn't a sign of things to come. The last thing we need are publicists ringing up outlets to let them know when someone at CAA is about to click the "Send" button.

You know, we really tried to be optimistic about this. The cast features a bunch of very funny people we really like such as Jason Segel, T.J. Miller, Romany Malco, Joe Lo Truglio and hell, even Jack Black, who can be great in the right circumstance. And with a script co-written by Nicholas Stoller ("Forgetting Sarah Marshall," "Get Him To The Greek"), we figured this might be the rare mainstream comedy that would have some fun with its premise. But alas, that's not to be.
