For her directorial debut, “Kissing Jessica Stein” and “Ira & Abby” writer Jennifer Westfeldt, has certainly rounded up some excellent talent to support her in front of the camera. Her partner and "Mad Men" star Jon Hamm, Megan Fox, Adam Scott and Kirsten Wiig are all on board and now, a regular standby in indie filmmaking circles has joined as well.

Ed Burns has confirmed with MTV, that he is in the film that will center on a pair of thirty-something best friends who observe the toll that having kids has taken on the couples they know and resolve to bypass that stress by having a child and then dating other people. "I play one of the characters that has kids, that seems to be doing a pretty good job parenting, even though I'm going through a divorce," Burns revealed. "My love interest is the writer/director [Jennifer Westfeldt]."

Filming continues in New York City, with Mike Nichols and Jake Kasdan executive producing. A spring release is in the works.
