Grey's Anatomy star Jesse Williams has swapped the daily stresses and navy blue scrubs of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital for something a little more upbeat, with the actor set to star in a new rom-com. Following his exit from the series as Dr Jackson Avery, Williams has signed on for a role in Reese Witherspoon and Ashton Kutcher's upcoming Netflix venture titled: Your Place Or Mine.
In a media statement, writer-director Aline Brosh McKenna told Variety magazine: "Our entire Your Place Or Mine team is thrilled to welcome these wonderful actors to the movie. They are supremely brilliant and talented and we can't wait to embark on this journey with them." Details of Williams' role are however currently under wraps.
On the up side though, the plot is known for the star-studded Netflix project. Following best friends Debbie and Peter, Your Place Or Mine sees the pair swap houses and lives for a week. Total opposites of one another, Debbie craves routine with her son in Los Angeles, whereas Peter thrives on the fast-paced life of New York City. As they step into each other's shoes, it doesn't take long for Debbie and Peter to discover what they think they want might not in fact be what they really need.
Jason Bateman of Ozark fame will produce the Netflix title with Michael Costigan under their Aggregate Films banner. McKenna's Lean Machine and Reese Witherspoon's company Hello Sunshine are also on board.
