Brooklyn Decker Ditches Modeling for Acting? Lands NEW Series Titled ‘Friends With Better Lives,’ Reveals: ‘I Wasn’t Succesful as a Model!’ [SEE PICS]
The gorgeous wife of tennis star Andy Roddick has reportedly landed a starring role on CBS’s upcoming series, “Friends With Better Lives.”
According to the New York Daily News, Decker got into acting after finding out ‘she wasn’t that successful as a model.’
“I set out to go into acting,” said Decker, who turns 27 on April 12. “And this show is great, because I love comedy. [SEE PICS]
“I don’t know if I was considered ‘funny’ when I was growing up. … People who have known me for a while would always be really surprised when I would, like, tell a dirty joke.”
The new show, premiering March 31st, centers around six twenty-something-year-old friends who appear to spend all their time together.
Decker admitted that because the theme is similar to the hit series “Friends,” many will compare the two shows.
“We’re a different show with different personalities,” she said. “But I’m sure there will be comparisons. Hey, ‘Friends’ is one of my favorite shows.”
The synopsis for the series plays out as follows:
“Bobby (Kevin Connolly) and Andi (Majandra Delfino) are married with one little kid and another on the way. Their problem, they say, is they have no love life. Will (James Van Der Beek) is just divorced and fooling nobody when he says he loves being free. Kate (Zoe Lister-Jones) wants the perfect man and keeps getting irregulars.”
Decker plays Jules, a woman who has just fallen into a relationship with Lowell (Rick Donald). The two are reportedy head over heels in love.
“They’re like two lost little puppies,” Decker said.
Although she maintains a more orderly life than that that of Jules, she admits the two have a few similarities.
“We’re both huge cheerleaders for our friends,” she said. “We love our friends. I don’t think it’s at all strange that these people would spend all their time with each other.”
“When we aren’t in L.A., we live in Texas, and I can totally relate to that open-door policy. We always have people staying for the weekend.”
