B.S. Report: The Rom-Com Almost-Stars With Wesley Morris and Juliet Litman

It’s been 25 years since the birth of the modern romantic comedy. Beginning with When Harry Met Sally… in 1989, the genre has become a launching pad for some actors and a refuge for others. In these movies we find predictable moments, heightened notions of love, and a lot of questionable outfits. And while the genre has morphed over the years, we’re still in love with rom-coms — so we’re celebrating them all week. Welcome to Rom-Com Week.

In this special edition of the B.S. Report, Bill Simmons talks with Wesley Morris and Juliet Litman about actors and actresses who should have been great romantic-comedy stars.
