Tina Fey wanted for Nancy Meyers’ The Intern

14 April 2012

30 Rock favourite Tina Fey is attached to the lead role in Nancy Meyers' forthcoming comedy The Intern.

The Intern is the story of Fey's founder of a fashion e-business, which will acquire seniors as interns as part of a community outreach programme.

Fey will be getting an intern in the film, who happens to be an over-70 widower retired from a middle management career, but the pair eventually develop an unlikely friendship.

In a report by Deadline, Meyers said "Tina's character is much younger than me, but I was attracted to the pressures the character feels with her business, her husband and kids, and seeing all this from the point of view of a man who has been through it."
