A year from now Jennifer Lopez will hit the big five-oh, and she seems to be playing close to her age in Peter Segal‘s Second Act (STX, 11.21). Feels like a middle-aged Working Girl meets the Tootsie premise (i.e., landing a job under false pretenses, having to maintain a big lie in order to hold on to it).
It took me two glances to realize that the weathered white-haired guy interviewing J. Lo for a job at the 50-second mark is Detective Danny Ciello — i.e., 68 year-old Treat Williams. The trailer doesn’t even give Williams a fast close-up — the fact that Williams used to be a hot-shot, name-brand actor in the late ’70s and ’80s is completely ignored. Hey, man…I used to be in the big game.
