Olivia Wilde Will Deep Throat, and More...

- One of our many Olivias--Wilde, this time--is in talks to star in Lovelace, a film about Deep Throat deep throater Linda Lovelace that is entirely different than the Malin Ackerman-starring film about Linda Lovelace. This one has James Franco.

- Entourage executive producers Mark Wahlberg and Doug Ellin have confirmed, "We're going to do a[n Entourage] movie." In light of Arrested Development and Party Down likely not fulfilling their promise of taking us to tv-to-movie Disneyland, it's nice of Uncle Mark to offer us a consolatory ride to a McDonald's ball pit, but no thanks.

- Summit Entertainment has attached Antoine Fuqua to direct an adaptation of John Huddy's 2008 non-fiction book Storming Las Vegas: How a Cuban-Born, Soviet-Trained Commando Took Down The Strip to the Tune of Five World Class Hotels, Three Armored Cars, and Millions of Dollars. You get the gist of it.

- Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim may feature Willem Dafoe as a rogue scientist specializing in alien creatures, which is perfect, because that's just what Willem Dafoe looks like he should be.

- Robert Patrick is taking the role left by Bryan Cranston's departure from Gangster Squad. Patrick's no Cranston, but hey, he was T-fucking-1000, man.

- Not yet fed up with comic book villainy from X-Men: First Class, Kevin Bacon is in talks to play the villain opposite Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges in R.I.P.D. too. So sad that the younger generation will know Bacon as an evil man, while giving credit to this other kid for making small town dancing legal.
