Jennifer Aniston is engaged! I am a big fan of her fiancé, Justin Theroux. Theroux is a talented actor who has appeared in the mystifying art-house melodrama, Mulholland Drive (as an arrogant director), in the underrated indie romantic comedy The Baxter (as the too-good-to-be-true-but-he-is romantic rival for the affections of the lead character’s girlfriend), and in serious historical drama (as John Hancock in the HBO series, John Adams), and an animated movie for kids (he provided the voice of Megamind‘s father).
He comes from a family of writers (his uncle is the distinguished travel writer, Paul Theroux), and he co-wrote the outrageous Ben Stiller film, Tropic Thunder and he wrote the screenplay for Iron Man 2. I didn’t like the film he and Aniston made together, Wanderlust, but I liked both of their performances. Here’s hoping for a happy ever after for them both, on and off the screen.
