Ryan Phillippe and Jenna Dewan Join Set Up With 50 Cent and Bruce Willis

Ryan Phillippe and Jenna Dewan Get Set Up With New Roles

After trying his hand at comedy with MacGruber, Ryan Phillippe is going back to drama. The actor is set to star in Set Up, a thriller starring Bruce Willis and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson that follows a group of friends caught in "a diamond heist that turns deadly." He'll be joining Jenna Dewan, who has also recently signed onto the project.

Between this and The Lincoln Lawyer, it seems like Phillippe is sticking to a genre that he's more comfortable with (considering MacGruber's poor showing, that might be a good thing). As for Dewan, I'm just going to assume that she's playing either 1) one of the guy's girlfriends or 2) some sort of tough but sexy accomplice clad in tight leather pants. Even so, I'm glad to see her get another movie role, instead of just letting her hubby hog the spotlight.
