Casting News

Some thoughts on some recent casting news...

Larry the Cable Guy of Witless Protection fame has been cast in Sir Tyler Perry’s latest entry into the Madea saga: A Madea Christmas. This film will have two ingredients that make Christmas such a great holiday: unrelenting red neck humor and a middle aged man behaving like a crotchety elderly woman. At least that’s how it is at the Beal house ever year.

Aaron Johnson, star of Kick Ass and Anna Karinininana is currently in the running to play the lead role in the upcoming Godzilla reboot. The filmmakers are taking the series in a different direction and will focus on Godzilla’s origin as the photographer for his high school newspaper before he is bitten by a radioactive lizard that turns him into a gigantic, fire breathing monster.

Tina Fey is the most recent addition to the ever growing cast of The Muppets 2. She is set to play a guard for a Russian prison. The nature of her role leads me to believe that Kermit and the gang could be doing some hard time in this outing. I’ve always been curious to see what a prison shiv would do to a Muppet; I guess we’ll just have to be patient.

In TV casting news, Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters are set to return in different roles for the third season of American Horror Story. For those who are unaware, each season of American Horror Story tackles a completely different story with all new characters. Season one was about a haunted house, season two focused on an insane asylum and the third season will take more of a documentary approach and do an in depth examination on the film career of Nicolas Cage.
