People. People! Mark-Paul Gosselaar will be on “Weeds” next season. The bad news? He’s only on one episode. The good news? He’ll be playing a “rough-around-the-edges” bar owner. I hope Zack Attack is the bar band. (Hat Tip: Mebe) (E! Network)
Danny McBride — the funny dude that everyone seems to recognize but whose name no one seems to know — has signed on to Bullies, about two brothers who bully folks all their lives only to finally get what’s coming to them. The script comes from Yes Man’s Andrew Mogel and Jarrad Paul, so you know it’s a quality high concept. I think I’ll stick with Eastbound & Down. (THR)
Speaking of the Pajiba Ten (1992 Edition): No. I wouldn’t put Ryan Reynolds on my freebies list in 1992. This is why. (But listen to his beautiful Indian accent) (H/T Celery). (Video Detective)
McG has offered Sam Worthington one of the lead roles — opposite Chris Pine — in the long-in-development This Means War, an action-comedy about a couple of “best friends and veteran spies who wage black-ops warfare on each other when they both fall for the same girl (Reese Witherspoon).” Sounds decidedly McGish, and by that, I mean: I’ll probably suck llama balls. But hey! At least it’s an original concept. Kind of. (Vulture)
Offers have gone out to Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, James McAvoy, Ian McKellen and Natalie Portman to star in Tom Twyker’s adaption of the David Mitchell novel, Cloud Atlas. Dunno about the movie, but it’s a great goddamn book. And Twyker’s a dude you can trust. Outlook: Positive. (The Playlist)
Alex Garland (28 Days Later, The Beach) has been hired to script the Logan’s Run remake for director Carl Rinsch. (THR)
Half the population of England — Jeremy Irvine, Emily Watson, Peter Mullan, David Thewlis, Benedict Cumberbatch, Stephen Graham, and Patrick Kennedy — have been added to the cast of Spielberg’s War Horses.(Empire)
I’ve already received two press releases, so it must be really important to mention that “Hot in Cleveland,” which stars Betty White, achieved the highest TV Land ratings of all time, nearly reaching 5 million bored viewers. Anyone see this? And has Betty White backlash set in yet?
Finally, here’s The Breakfast Club Porn Parody trailer. Because I couldn’t find anything better.
