As the world watched with bated breath to see how he could possibly top curbing January Jones despite looking like your dad, Jason Sudeikis has reportedly moved on to Scarlett Johansson. The two were recently spotted on a “double date” with Will Forte in Santa Monica, but according to Celebuzz, Scarlett’s rep insists it was purely platonic which is exactly what a rep is paid to do: Make their client look reasonable and not at all careening into a pit of poor decisions. At this point, I can’t help but feel Jason Sudeikis’ grand finale is going to involve firing a bullet through Brian Austin Green’s skull then making love to Megan Fox through the exit hole. “Wait. But? How is that even-” you might be thinking. The man has the world’s largest penis.

Although their reps deny any involvement, Jennifer Love Hewitt, a fellow actor, weighed in about the budding romance: “I think they make a really cute couple,” she said. Of course, I’m making all this up. But, since everyone else is playing “fantasy match-making” between Reynolds and Sandra Bullock; and Reynolds and former flame Alanis Morissette; and Reynolds and “some unidentified young woman at the Chateau Marmont Jan. 13” — why can’t we have some fun too? In truth, the idea of Reynolds and McAdams together came from a reader of this column, who said if she were to pair the newly single “Sexiest Man Alive” with anyone, it would be McAdams.
