This is kind of a catch-all casting break, as it goes all over the map. I’d love to tie the four stories that follow to a theme beyond ‘these people are all in new movies,’ but if that theme exists, I’m afraid it escapes me now. So, after the break you’ll find:

  • Sienna Guillory appears to be confirmed to return as Jill Valentine in the fifth Resident Evil film,
  • comedian Gabriel Iglesias will spin records (or CDs, more likely) in Soderbergh’s Magic Mike,
  • Olivia Wilde takes what formerly belonged to Jennifer Garner,
  • and James Hong will play Ryan Reynolds, sort of, in R.I.P.D.

Director Robert Schwentke is filling in the rest of his cast for the soon-to-lens R.I.P.D., an adaptation of the Dark Horse comic series about a recently murdered man (Ryan Reynolds) who is recruited by the Rest In Piece Department, a group dead detectives who police the after life. He teams up with a grizzled old veteran, played by Jeff Bridges, to find out who murdered him and will go up against a character played by Kevin Bacon. The new additions include Mike O’Malley, currently seen on Fox’s Glee, who’ll be playing a ghost, and Sports Illustrated model Marisa Miller, who’ll play the human avatar of Jeff Bridges’ character. So Miller’s first big screen appearance will be playing Jeff Bridges. Not bad. Read more after the break. Read More »
