Movie News Roundup: Biel, Arkin and Tisdale — Oh, My!


Lots of movie casting news these days — from Marley and Me to aliens lurking upstairs.

  • Alan Arkin will join Jennifer Aniston and Owen WIlson in the film adaptation of bestselling memoir Marley and Me. Wilson plays a newspaper columnist who adopts a dog with his wife (Aniston). Arkin will play the editor of the newspaper.
  • Jessica Biel will star as the lead in the romantic comedy Easy Virtue, based on the Noel Coward play. The movie follows Biel's character, "an American divorcee who travels to the South of France and marries a young Englishman, played by Ben Barnes, on the spur of the moment. The couple return to England to face his family, including his parents, played by Colin Firth and Kristin Scott Thomas."
  • Amy Ryan is the lucky lady chosen to star opposite Matt Damon in an untitled Iraq war thriller directed by Paul Greengrass, the director of two of the Bourne movies and United 93.
  • High School Musical star Ashley Tisdale will make her feature film debut in "the adventure comedy" They Came From Upstairs about "a group of teens who have to defend their Maine home from the aliens who invaded the top floor." Just the top floor? Huh.

Damn, Jessica Biel got a good part in a future movie based on a Noel Coward play. Couldn't they find someone better...like someone who can act?

I'm excited about Amy Ryan's new project. She was incredibly moving in Gone Baby Gone (I'm rooting for her during this awards season.) and she's so likeable as Beadie on the Wire. Go Amy!

Ashley's nose job changed the way her face looks. She looked better before.

Buzz- Paul Greengrass only directed the last two Bournes, Doug Liman directed the first one...I only know this tidbit because I liked the first one so much better than the last two, and I didn't have a headache from all the shaky action at the end. Then I looked it up and lo and behold...I'm not such a fan of Paul Greengrass. Oh well. :-D

Jessica Biel looks suprisingly pretty there but Ashley Tisdale looks beat...and is an awful actress.

My bad, she's 20 something, oh well. But still... :)

Although perhaps old enough to play Ben's father, Colin Firth doesn't look old enough to play Jessica Biel's father (or father in law as the case is). He's only 48, what is she like 30-something? And on a completely irrelevant note, what is going on with Ashley's face?
