Jennifer Aniston to star as a sports agent in a new movie

Jennifer Aniston, best known for her role as Rachel Karen Green in NBC’s “Friends” as well as roles in “The Break-Up,” “We’re the Millers,” “Cake,” both “Horrible Bosses” movies and “Marley & Me,” has signed to star in a new movie “The Fixer.”

According to The Wrap, Aniston will play Denise White who was a former Miss USA contestant who became a top sports agent and founded her own company, Entertainers & Athletes Group.

White is a former broadcaster who decided to go into career management for athletes. Variety says White’s clients have included Vince Young, Tony Gonzalez, Brandon Marshall and DeSean Jackson.

White represented Oregon in the 1994 Miss USA pageant and won the Congeniality Award.

The team that is producing “The Fixer” is the same one that brought “Cake” to fruition which  brought some critical acclaim and some Oscar buzz to Aniston. This movie follows White’s rise in the sports agent field which has been chronicled in the iconic Tom Cruise movie, “Jerry Maguire.”

Fox 2000 is producing the movie. There’s no word as to when the movie will begin production and/or when it will be released to the American viewing public.
