Earlier this week, ET's Leanne Aguilera spoke with Theroux at the HBO press junket for The Leftovers
, and talked about the possibility of working with his wife and writing her into one of his projects
. "If the right thing came around I would definitely [write] it," shared the 45-year-old star, whose screenwriting resume includes films like Tropic Thunder
and Iron Man 2.
"We toss around ideas occasionally, but it's got to be something I want to write and something she wants to act in, which is harder than you might think."
