Spectacular Breasts, I Mean, Brooklyn Decker Joins 'What To Expect When You're Expecting'

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist June 30, 2011 at 7:16AM

Where do we start with this story? The fact that this a movie based on a pregnancy book? Or maybe the fact that for model-turned-actress Brooklyn Decker, it's another role where she plays a character with a name that is either male and/or sounds like a something given to an automobile. Maybe we'll start there.

Where do we start with this story? The fact that this a movie based on a pregnancy book? Or maybe the fact that for model-turned-actress Brooklyn Decker, it's another role where she plays a character with a name that is either male and/or sounds like a something given to an automobile. Maybe we'll start there.

Lionsgate has announced that Decker will play the role of Skyler (name alert!), a relentlessly perky woman who is married to an older man and pisses off her friends because she flies through her pregnancy with twins with ease. Which leads us to ask: what kind of assholes are her friends? Anyway, in addition to play Skyler, Brooklyn will play Sam in "Battleship," took on the role of Palmer in "Just Go With It" and has played guest spots as Lexie and Job in "Ugly Betty" and "Chuck," respectively. Can't someone get this girl a role where she plays a Jennifer or a Karen or a Julie?

Anyway, she joins Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lopez (looks like those previous reports about Isla Fisher were erroneous) in the Kirk Jones-directed movie that unfolds not unlike “Love Actually,” except it will track four different couples on the path to having a baby. The movie will ambitiously head into theaters on May 11, 2012 opposite Sacha Baron Cohen's "The Dictator" and Tim Burton's "Dark Shadows." It's either smart counter-programming or a suicide mission...guess we'll find out soon... [via ComingSoon]
