ComingSoon.net talked to Nathan Fillion and Cheryl Hines about writer/director Adrienne Shelly's Waitress, opening in limited theaters May 2.
Keri Russell plays Jenna, a waitress in a cheery southern diner who discovers that she's pregnant. Motherhood was never in her plans, and she's already saddled with her needy, jealous and infantile husband Earl (Jeremy Sisto).
At first, things seem hopeless and her dreams for a better life are in ruins, until a good-looking doctor (Fillion) arrives in town and mixes things up. With the support and love of her friends and co-workers (Shelly and Hines) at Joe's Pie Diner, Jenna exhibits her skills with crusts and fillings which are particularly appreciated by Joe himself (Andy Griffith).
