Today’s onscreen author is the hapless and lovable Alex Sheldon, as portrayed by Luke Wilson in Alex & Emma.
I really love how his muse changes with the wind. He imagines his main female character—and coincidentally his love interest, Emma—as everything from a Russian school marm to a French nanny.
Emma (Kate Hudson) is also hilarious as the reader/stenographer who is constantly second-guessing Alex’s initial ideas. She makes the story better in the process, and it’s so fun to see their creative process and the “imagined” world of their actual characters.
