Are January Jones & Will Forte Dating? If The Rumors Are True, These Two Would Make A Great Match
Will Forte's character on The Last Man On Earth may have some serious difficulty in the love department, but in real life, it looks like he may have found some big success with his costar on the new apocalyptic comedy. And get this, his rumored real-life lady friend plays a love interest of his on the show. According to Us Weekly, Will Forte and January Jones are dating and have been casually seeing each other for a couple of months.
An insider told Us, "He's a good guy," and said that the new pair is "having fun" together. While new couple news is always exciting, it is worth mentioning that it has yet to be confirmed by either Jones or Forte whether the news is true. And you might not want to hold your breath waiting for a clear confirmation anytime soon. After all, both stars have a reputation for keeping certain personal aspects of their lives private, including the status of their romantic relationships. But it is worth keeping your fingers crossed that it is true, because it seems like the two would be a good match together, connection on their new show aside.
First of all, they both have experience doing work in comedy. Of course, Forte was a cast member on Saturday Night Live for eight seasons, making a name for himself with unique characters and sketches, such as a member of "Jon Bovi," a Bon Jovi "opposite tribute band" and the well-received MacGruber. But Jones, for her part, has some comedic chops, as well. Long before starring on The Last Man On Earth, she starred in American Wedding, the third installment of the American Pie series. While she has done work in many different genres, most notably in the period drama Mad Men, it is undeniable that she knows how to make people laugh, too. And what's more important than finding someone who knows how to make you laugh?
Another reason why the two would make an excellent fit is that even though they are both famous, they both tend to be more private than other celebrities. Forte admitted that much in a 2010 interview with A.V. Club . He said, "I’m kind of under the radar. Not a lot of people notice me. Which is surprising, because I’m so sexy. They’re probably intimidated by my sexiness and crushability." And Jones has implied the same is true for her when it comes to divulging personal details about her life, albeit in a more serious fashion, such as her refusal to reveal the identity of her baby's father back in 2013. Seeing as Forte is admittedly more under the radar, he would probably be very respectful of Jones' wishes to keep certain things away from the public eye. And vice versa, of course.
Also, it doesn't hurt that the supposedly lovestruck costars look absolutely adorable in photos together. Their work together on the show probably gave them the chance to get to know each other better and at least become closer. We will have to keep our eyes peeled to see if they're holding hands the next time they're seen together!
