It’s that time again — Valentine’s Day! And what better way to celebrate than by heading to the movies with your significant other (or friends!) to watch the newest romantic comedy, Tumbledown.
The movie centers around a young widow, Hannah (Rebecca Hall), who falls for pop culture scholar, Andrew (Jason Sudeikis), when he comes to Maine to interview her about the circumstances surrounding her late husband’s death. When the unlikely pair strike a deal to co-write a biography of Hannah’s husband, an acclaimed singer, Andrew finds himself clashing with a cast of locals, including Hannah’s hunky suitor (Joe Manganiello) and her loving but defensive parents (Blythe Danner, Richard Masur). Hannah and Andrew’s stormy partnership blossoms into an unexpected connection and they face the possibility that the newest chapter in their lives may involve each other.
CelebSecrets4U spoke with Jason Sudeikis last night on the red carpet at the New York Film Critics Series’ live premiere screening and taping of Tumbledown at AMC Theaters in New York City.
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, Sudeikis couldn’t help but talk about his plans for the special day with his financee, Olivia Wilde. The parents of 23-month-old Otis would be leaving their tot at home while they headed to Toronto, Canada for the All-Star Celebrity Game. Sudeikis is scheduled to play for Team USA that weekend, so that’s how the couple would be spending their Valentine’s Day, and although Sudeikis isn’t playing for the MVP title, he still wants to make the weekend fun for himself, all of his teammates and Olivia.
“No I would never. I would never. I wouldn’t turn it [MVP title] down if I — if I got it, but I think it would probably just be for sheer emotional support to the people that are going to be in far better shape than me. Although I’ll be cheering the loudest. The most high fives — that’s what I’ll be going for.”
