Watch: Tina Fey Shows Off Dramatic Chops in Trailer for 'Admission,' Co-Starring Paul Rudd (VIDEO)
Tina Fey is saying goodbye to Liz Lemon this year as "30 Rock" comes to a close after six seasons, but that doesn't mean you'll be seeing any less of the Emmy-winning jack (or jill) of all trades. After hosting the upcoming Golden Globes alongside her "Saturday Night Live" alum Amy Poehler, fans can catch her next Spring on the big screen in the romantic comedy "Admission," co-starring Paul Rudd and directed by "About a Boy" helmer Paul Weitz. The trailer for the Focus Features release went live today and promises a Fey we're not quite used to seeing (i.e. she's a tad dramatic).
In "Admission," Fey stars as an amibitious Princeton admissions officer who, while out on a recruiting trip, falls for a charming single dad (Rudd) and come across a teenager who may or may not be her estranged son.
As the preview makes clear, "Admission" has its funny parts, but the trailer hints at something more in line with Weitz's popular dramedies "About a Boy" and "In Good Company," than his broad comedies "American Pie" and "Little Fockers." We'll know for sure when the film opens on March 8, 2013.
