Most of us stop thinking about work as we enter the holiday season, but Hollywood actors and actresses are lining up their jobs for the new year. There is a whole bunch of casting news that’s recently been announced, much of it in the romantic comedy genre, and here’s the rundown.
Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks and G4′s Olivia Munn will join Kelsey Grammer and Pierce Brosnan in the comedy I Don’t Know How She Does It, which stars Sarah Jessica Parker as a woman juggling her work on Wall Street with a family life. Parker herself is also joining the huge ensemble for Garry Marshall’s romantic comedy New Year’s Eve while Halle Berry is in negotiations for a role too. 30 Rock award winner Alec Baldwin is the latest actor circling a spot in the Broadway adaptation Rock of Ages. Everyone’s favorite Viper pilot, Battlestar Galactica‘s Katee Sackhoff will star in Sexy Evil Genius, which is about a girl who brings all her exes to the same bar. Rosario Dawson and Lynn Collins are now part of the high school reunion film Ten Year with Chris Pine and Channing Tatum and Ed Burns joins Megan Fox and Jon Hamm in Jennifer Westfeldt’s romantic comedy Friends With Kids.

Paul Rudd will star in My Idiot Brother, an indie comedy that will have the actor as “an idealist, dealing with his overbearing mother, who crashes into the homes of his three ambitious sisters and, in succession, brings truth, happiness and a sunny disposition into their lives while also wreaking havoc.” Is it any wonder that producers of Little Miss Sunshine are behind this one?
Jesse Peretz directs from a script by Evgenia Peretz (his sister) and David Schisgall. The sisters aren’t yet cast, but we should hear those names soon, as the film shoots next month. [THR]
After the break, new cast for Tilda, Deathgames, and a ‘Fight Club meets werewolves’ movie. Read More »

There’s been some talk of late that a reboot of the Daredevil franchise could be on the cards. The latest, and potentially greatest, piece of evidence could come from the blog of LA Comic Shop Golden Apple.

So we got a little visit in our comic shop last week by Katee Sackhoff, also known as Starbuck for her role on BSG. She proceeded to grab all the Typhoid Mary comics we had and has hopes to get a part for a Marvel movie….
Typhoid Mary being one of the key characters in the Daredevil series, it would seem quite likely that the film in question is this rumoured reboot. Of course, she also appeared in some key Deadpool storylines… so… perhaps… maybe…
