Alison Brie is now engaged to Dave Franco and Jason Sudeikis is engaged to Olivia Wilde, but once upon a time, Community creator Dan Harmon tried to set the two up.

Brie and Sudeikis revealed the story when they appeared on The View Tuesday morning to promote their new film, Sleeping with Other PeopleAccording to Brie, Harmon texted her one day to ask if it was okay to set her up with Sudeikis. She was all for it — until he replied a bit later to tell her to forget it: Sudeikis was already seeing someone. Looks like Harmon just really thought they would hit it off. 

The two get to live out their could-be relationship in Sleeping with Other People, though, a romantic comedy where the pair’s friendship gets messy when they discover they’re attracted to each other. The movie arrives in theaters Friday — see our review here.
