Tina Fey and Owen Wilson are both circling the Paul Weitz project Admission, which believe it or not, is a DRAMA, not a comedy.
Sources say that Tina is very close to signing on the film as Portia Nathan, a hard-working Ivy League admissions staff member who encounters a smart, but academically-challenged 17-year-old on a routine recruiting trip.
Owen is eyeing the role of the high school teacher who falls for Tina's character.
Once both stars give a definite yes, shooting for the film will begin this summer during Tina's break from 30 Rock.
Despite the fact that it's a drama, it actually sounds like it's right up both Tina and Owen's alley.
We just wonder if Tina could pull off a dramatic role. The gurl is so talented though, so of course, we're thinking YES!!
