Andy Samberg Gets Divorced in 'Celeste and Jesse Forever' Trailer (Video)

"Celeste and Jesse Forever"

Why It Will Sell: This 21st century out-of-love story stars hip comedy actors Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg as exes who try to remain friends. Warm, mature commercial appeal will seal the deal. Director: Lee Toland Krieger; Rep: UTA

The "SNL" alumn and “Parks and Recreation” star Rashida Jones play separated spouses who struggle to remain best friends.

They aren’t friends with benefits. They’re soon-to-be divorcees with friendship.


The first trailer for Celeste and Jesse Forever shows adorable BFFs (and separated spouses) played by Andy Samberg and Rashida Jones navigating their relationship post-marriage. When we come across the couple, they are still spending every day together,  six months after their separation. This apparently irks their friend, who says they haven’t accepted the end of their marriage.

But things seem to be rolling along well for the couple, until a reveal that changes everything. 

“This is going to be hard to believe, but I met another person,” Samberg's character says.

Co-written by Jones (NBC’s Parks and Recreation) and directed by Lee Toland Krieger, the film premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, where it was picked up by Sony Pictures Classics. It hits theaters Aug. 3.
