Hollywood Ink: Christina Hendricks Gets Put in Drive
Also in this morning's Hollywood Ink: Danny McBride and Aziz Ansari to battle an Olympic-Size A**hole... Keanu Reeves starts a Generation... Harry Potter finds some help for The Woman in Black... and more ahead.
· Bust out your accordion and celebrate! Mad Men star Christina Hendricks will join Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston and Albert Brooks in Nicolas Winding Refn's increasingly awesome sounding thriller, Drive. Let's hope she has more fun on the set than January Jones. [Variety]
· Danny McBride and Aziz Ansari will star in Olympic-Size A**hole, a movie that will have a brand new title by the time you see it at your local multiplex in whatever year it finally gets released. Written by Harris Wittels (Parks and Recreation), the film would follow McBride and Ansari as they try to get revenge on an Olympic athlete for sleeping with their girlfriends. Sounds like Eastbound and Down without McBride in the Kenny Powers role. [MTV]
· Woah, etc. Keanu Reeves starts shooting Generation Um... in New York later today. The indie drama follows three people as they "live life on the fringe, immersed in sex, drugs and indecision." Good for them. [Variety]
· Ciaran Hands and Janet McTeer have joined Daniel Radcliffe in the adaptation of Susan Hill's supernatural novel, The Woman in Black. They'll play a husband and wife who try to educate Radcliffe's wet-behind-the-ears lawyer about the ghostly encounters he's having. [Deadline]
· Malin Akerman will co-star with Ethan Hawke in The Numbers Game, a CIA thriller about a black ops agent who must protect an everywoman from the bad guys. It's the indie Knight & Day! [Variety]
· She may have moved away from Wisteria Lane, but that doesn't mean Andrea Bowen is having trouble finding work. The former Desperate Housewives star will star in Preacher's Daughter. [Variety]
