It's a comedy set in suburbia with a touch of James Bond. "Keeping up with the Joneses" pits two neighboring couples against each other with actors Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher as typical suburbanites Jeff and Karen Gaffney, who suspect that their new neighbors, Tim and Natalie Jones might be undercover agents. Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot portray the seemingly perfect couple, although their first meeting, the actors reveal, was anything but. SOUNDBITE: Actors Gal Gadot And Jon Hamm, saying (English) John Hamm: "We met on the day of the read through which was a couple of days before we started shooting." Gal Gadot: "He thought I was an assistant." John Hamm: "I'm not kidding, I did. She had a baseball cap or something. She did not look like an international movie star and I was like 'There you are." Galifianakis and Fisher praised their glamorous counterparts. SOUNDBITE: Actors Zach Galifianakis And Isla Fisher, saying (English) Zach Galifianakis: "Gal and John are lovely people. Their looks sometimes get in the way of their personalities, meaning we look at these nice gorgeous people - and Isla's like this too - but underneath this gorgeousness there's a real personality." Isla Fisher: "That's the problem." Zach Galifianakis: "That's the problem. It's the personality underneath." In the movie, Karen and Jeff discover that the pair are in fact secret agents, and soon find themselves entangled in a mission regarding stolen weaponry. 'Keeping up with the Joneses' opens in theaters on October 21.
