The pair first played best friends in the 1997 rom-com, then played near-inlaws in August: Osage County in 2014. Now, he’s taking on the role of her boyfriend. “It’s only taken 30 years,” jokes Roberts, 50. “It’s always been such a privilege to work with Julia,” adds Mulroney, 54. “I’ve had incredible scenes with this incredible actor and she just happens to be my best friend.”
