With his acclaimed HBO drama “The Leftovers” kicking off its third and final season later this month, Justin Theroux is getting ready to start in on some new projects, and the multi-talented star said he’d love for them to include his wife, Jennifer Aniston.
“Right now I’m actually going to be focused on writing,” Theroux told ET’s Leanne Aguilera during an HBO press junket for “The Leftovers” on Monday. “So I have a few things that I’ve actually already written that I’m tweaking and retooling and another thing I want to write.”
In the past, Aniston has said that if she ever did return to TV, she’d like it to be as part of a show on a premium cable network. With Aniston willing to jump onboard a scripted series, and Theroux turning his attention to writing, it could be a match made in heaven.
“If the right thing came around I would definitely [write] it,” shared the 45-year-old “Girl on the Train” star, whose screenwriting resume includes films like “Tropic Thunder” and “Iron Man 2.” “We toss around ideas occasionally, but it’s got to be something I want to write and something she wants to act in, which is harder than you might think.”
“But yeah, it would be fantastic if we were able to do something together,” he added.
ET caught up with Theroux at CinemaCon 2017 in Las Vegas last week, where he opened up about their choice to keep their nuptials low-key: “It’s so much more special when it’s just your closest friends and family and it’s lovely,” he explained. “[Aniston and I] wanted it to be a peaceful environment, you don’t want it to be hectic.”
