Tina Fey in talks to join Jason Bateman in 'This Is Where I Leave You'

Steel yourselves, comedy nerds: Liz Lemon might be playing Michael Bluth’s sister.

EW has confirmed that 30 Rock star Tina Fey is in early talks to star in This Is Where I Leave You opposite Jason Bateman. The film, based on Jonathan Tropper’s 2009 novel, follows a dysfunctional family that comes together to mourn the death of its gruff, withholding patriarch.

Bateman will play Judd, a middle child reeling over the recent implosion of his marriage; Fey would play his older sister Wendy, who is caught in an unhappy marriage of her own. Kathryn Hahn and Ari Graynor are rumored to be up for roles as well, though their involvement has not yet been confirmed. Shawn Levy, who previously directed Fey in Date Night, is attached to helm the film, which also features a script written by Tropper himself.

Fey’s next movie, Admission, hits theaters March 22. She will also appear in the Muppets sequel The Muppets… Again! that is currently filming in Europe.

'A Good Day to Die Hard' star Jai Courtney on working with Willis, new Andy Whitfield doc

Jai Courtney can currently be seen helping save the day as John McClane’s son Jack in action fifthquel  A Good Day to Die Hard. But the Australian had to ruin the day of a planeload of folks — or, at least, mildly inconvenience them — to play Bruce Willis’ offspring. “I was in L.A. boarding a plane home to Australia when my manager called and said I had to get off because they’d like to see  me test with Bruce,” recalls the actor, whose other credits include the Starz show Spartacus: Blood and Sand and last year’s Jack Reacher. “I had to literally walk off the flight. I was tempted to say, ‘I’m sorry, Bruce Willis is calling me.’ But they would just have thought I was a crazy person.”

Below, Courtney talks about acting with Bruce and reminisces about the late Spartacus star Andy Whitfield.

'Texas Chainsaw 3D' star Alexandra Daddario on facing off against Leatherface and those 'Fifty Shades of Grey' rumors

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise has a habit of casting actors on the cusp of fame, be they Matthew McConaughey and Renée Zellweger in 1994’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation, Jessica Biel in the 2003 remake of Tobe Hooper’s original classic shocker, or Matt Bomer in 2006’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. The latest thespian hoping to benefit from what we’re going to call “the Chainsaw bump” is Alexandra Daddario (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief) who plays the heroine in Texas Chainsaw 3D, which arrives in cinemas this Friday.

Below, the actress talks about facing off against the iconic Leatherface, the forthcoming Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, and why the cast members of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia aren’t as drunk as you might think. READ FULL STORY

News of Nicolas Cage signing on for 'The Expendables 3' is premature, says manager

There has been talk of Nicolas Cage joining the cast of the third Expendables movie, but it’s not a done deal. “He’s interested, but we’re waiting for it to come together,” Cage’s manager tells EW.com. A Sunday post on a Sylvester Stallone Facebook page that is attributed to Stallone says Cage’s casting has been “confirmed.” A rep for Stallone could not verify who runs that page.

'Zero Dark Thirty': James Gandolfini's secret role revealed -- EXCLUSIVE

The makers of Zero Dark Thirty have been holding on to some top secret information of their own.

While most of of the ensemble cast of the Osama bin Laden takedown film is already known, The Hurt Locker director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal have been keeping one important bit of casting news hush-hush for months.

James Gandolfini will appear as one of the highest-ranking government figures featured in the film — Leon Panetta, the current Secretary of Defense, who was head of the CIA when bin Laden was found and killed.

There’s a too-easy joke to be made here: How awesome is it that Tony Soprano is involved in the effort to whack Osama? READ FULL STORY

Wes Anderson: Johnny Depp will NOT be in 'The Grand Budapest Hotel'

Despite earlier reports, Johnny Depp will not be starring in Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel. According to the Huffington Post, Anderson denied the news, laughing, “The Internet has a way of announcing things on its own. You will find that even though I’m very aware of the cast that has been announced on its own devices, you’ll never find me saying who’s in the movie. … In fact, Johnny is somebody who I would love to work with at some point, but he’s not going to be in this movie.”

Anderson did confirm that Bill Murray will appear in the film, though. So we have that going for us, which is nice.

the-hole-poster.jpg

In director Joe Dante’s new movie The Hole a pair of young brothers (Chris Massoglia, Nathan Gamble) and their neighbor (Haley Bennett) investigate a mysterious chasm in the basement of the siblings’ house and are forced to deal with the array of terrifying unpleasantness which emerges from said aperture. Like Dante’s pair of Gremlins movies, the result is a family-friendly venture which may have younger clan members viewing the action through trembling fingers. “It’s my revenge,” laughs Dante. “That’s how I watched Tarantula in 1955. I forced my father to take me to see this giant spider movie and I’m so scared that I’m in the lobby peeking in. My poor father was left sitting alone watching a giant spider movie.”
