Jessica Alba’s Ass Cheeks — they walk downstairs, alone and in pairs, and they makes that slinkity sound. — has joined the cast of the Meet the Parents second sequel, Little Fockers. She joins an array of talented and untalented actors alike — including Ben Stiller, Robert DeNiro, and Dustin Hoffman — who have loudly squandered away their dignity on the Fuckers series. In the third movie, directed by Paul Weitz, Stiller and his wife, played by Teri Pollo, are having a child. Alba’s Ass plays a pharmaceutical rep who “wreaks havoc on the male characters.” Exciting, huh? So much talent; so little G-string.
Meanwhile, a couple of folks have already put in their request for a Halloween costume ideas comment diversion. We ran one last year, and I’m not sure it’s worth doing another one, since there were so many excellent ideas last year. However, one costume that wasn’t available last year is this Max-for-Adults Wild Things costume, which retails for $610. Filmdrunk, rightfully so, takes hipsters to task for trying to ruin Where the Wild Things Are before it’s even been released. But then again, who — if not for hipster children — is Where the Wild Things Are for? Let Tom and Wilma MiddleAmerica have Monsters and Aliens. We culturally elitist douchebags will gladly inflict Spike Jonze on our crumbsnatchers. Check out the costume — I’m not saying it’s cool or worth $610. I’m just saying, if I were to mysteriously receive this costume in the mail, that I wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to wear it.
In other news, Marc Webb — director of (500) Days of Summer — is negotiating to direct an American remake of the recently released Danish film, Just Another Love Story. “The film tells of a crime photographer who pretends to be the boyfriend of an amnesiac, only to face the wrath of the actual boyfriend when he finds out about the deception.” Not a terribly exciting logline, but the Danish film was a hit at Sundance ‘08. no one in America has apparently seen it, and Marc Webb is a solid director. I say: Win.
Finally, to steal another FilmDrunk find (originally found on OhHaveYouSeenThis) (although, Stace notes that she also posted one of these videos in PL two years ago) this video is kind of awesome. It’s a scene from “Wonder Years,” without Daniel Stern’s voiceover narration. Turns out, it’s just a bunch of awkward stares.
