While the deal isn't signed yet, Michael Ausiello reports that Russel is in final negotiations to portray Arnett’s love interest in Wilde Kingdom, a new single-camera romantic comedy that focuses on Steve Wilde (Arnett, a wealthy, selfish Beverly Hills playboy) who falls for a selfless humanitarian (Russell).

Arnett is married to Amy Poehler and guest-starred on Parks and Recreation a few weeks ago.

Let the celebratory screaming begin.
