Mae Whitman in Talks for 'The D.U.F.F' Lead

Mae Whitman may have another movie in the works!

According to Variety, the 25-year-old Parenthood actress is in negotiations to star in the upcoming film adaptation of “The D.U.F.F.”

Based on a novel of the same name by Kody Keplinger, the coming-of-age story centers on a 17 year-old who come to believe she is the “designated ugly fat friend.”

Here’s the book synopsis: Bianca Piper is cynical and loyal, and she doesn’t think she’s the prettiest of her friends by a long shot. She’s also way too smart to fall for the charms of man-slut and slimy school hottie Wesley Rush. In fact, Bianca hates him. And when he nicknames her “the Duff,” she throws her Coke in his face.
