Lots to catch up on before the Comic-Con coverage starts rolling in here. Last I saw, Prisco was attending a sparsely-populated Danny Elfman panel.
Oliva Munn, who is dumber than Twinkie filling but hasn’t managed to ruin “The Daily Show” yet, will now attempt to ruin “Chuck” by guest starring on the season premiere as a CIA Agent. I’d complain about casting a hopelessly attractive, somewhat dim actor as a super-spy but that’s kind of “Chuck’s” forte. (EW)
I thought this was amusing. Deadline is reporting EXCLUSIVELY that Halle Berry will star in Shoe Addicts Anonymous, a movie that will look at the lives of four Chicago women from different ethnic backgrounds. Why is that amusing? Because we reported that EXCLUSIVE news back on April 1st. Looks like someone forgot to do a Google search. (Deadline)
Sharon Stone will play the mother of Mary in Sweet Baby Jesus, a quirky retelling of the Nativity Story that will also star Adrien Brody and Bette Midler. (Deadline)
Here are the first couple of images from Drive Angry 3D, featuring Amber Heard and Nicolas Cage. (Hitfix)
Nate Corddry has landed a gig opposite Kathy Bates in David E. Kelley’s new legal drama, “Harry’s Law,” which will be airing on NBC. (Deadline)
Larry Charles (Bruno) will direct Jim Carrey in Pierre Pierre, which will be about an obnoxious Frenchman transporting a painting from Paris to London (Deadline)
Here’s a fun fact: Jenna Fischer was married the other day. Her officiant? “Survivor’s” Jeff Probst. Whatever. I thought it was cool. (People)
As we reported way back in, like, 2007, Julia Stiles is now confirmed as producer and star of a movie based on Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar. (NYTimes)
Cole Haddon is penning the script for The Strange Case of Hyde, a Jekyll and Hyde in a Victorian-era action-adventure. (Heatvision)
CBS is putting together their own version of “The View,” which will replace “As the World Turns” this fall. It will feature Julie Chen, Holly Robinson Peete, Leah Remini, Sharon Osborne, and Sara Gilbert. Oh, Darlene. Really? (Deadline)
Finally, here’s the trailer for Lucky, a documentary about lottery winners from Jeffrey Blitz, who directed the outstanding Spellbound and Rocket Science. Lucky is currently airing on HBO.
