If you don’t know Ari Graynor, search “turkey sandwich scene” on YouTube for her completely improvised, inebriated-in-the-bus-station monologue (from 2008’s Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist) and get acquainted. Graynor is known for stealing movies as the raspy best friend that’s “a little more outrageous, a little brassy, a little drunk,” as she puts it, even though she hasn’t actually played the role so many times—she’s just the one you remember and want the film to be written around. So you can’t blame Rashida Jones, an in-demand best friend herself, for casting Graynor as hers in the Sundance hit comedy Celeste & Jesse Forever. “I think those roles are stepping-stones, a way of paying your dues—unless you walk out of the womb a supermodel,” Graynor says. “A lot of female comedians have been stuck in moments of being the best friend in good ways and bad. Now we’re pushing open the doors to say, ‘Listen, I don’t have to just be supporting. I can carry the movie in a different kind of way.’” Graynor does exactly that in For A Good Time Call… “We run a phone-sex line–so that’s pretty great,” she says of the comedy she stars in and executive produced. “I would be lying on a bed with a phone and we would be doing these camera swipes, and someone would yell, ‘Pretend he’s a redhead and has freckles on his dick!’ It was incredibly collaborative.”
