When In Rome, Do as DeVito Does

Maybe Rhea Pearlman knows something that we don't! In the later stages of his career, short n' round funnyman Danny DeVito, who is Pearlman's real-life hubby, has been reinvented as a bit of a sex symbol. He wooed (and won) Parker Posey from Paul Rudd in the indie comedy, The O In Ohio. Now, he's been cast as one of blonde cutie Kristen Bell's many suitors in Disney's forthcoming romantic comedy, When In Rome. No, you didn't read that wrong.
Bell will star as a New York curator who is so desperate for love that she ganks magical coins from a famous fountain in the ancient city of Rome. A series of mishaps occur as a result of her sticky fingered action and she is followed home by a collection of suitors, including DeVito. The cast also includes Will Arnett, Josh Duhamel, Dax Shepard and Anjelica Huston. Filming begins this month in NYC.
Will Bell's character succumb to DeVito's worldy Italian charms? It's entirely possible in this day and age. We guess 60 really is the new 30.
