Young Beaver


After doing the action hero thing all summer, Anton Yelchin is back to what he does best: playing the precocious son in indie comedies. The actor's now set to star opposite Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster in Foster's dark comedy The Beaver, reports Variety. Unsupportive of Gibson's cuckoo father (who begins to communicate through a hand puppet), Yelchin exhorts his Foster mother to divorce him. Careful, Anton. There's all sorts of torch singers circling if that happens. [Variety]
