Kinnear. Anniston. Boxed.–You can stop wringing your hands over the rounding out of
casting for the upcoming Universal comedy Baby Mama. In a bold choice, smiley
everyman Greg Kinnear has been cast as the male lead opposite female lead Tina
Fey, while ER doc and The Claw proponent Maura Tierney has been added as Fey’s
sister in the story about a career gal who wants a poopy, slobbery fun of a kid
but wants to keep the whole job thing going as well. Easy solution- carry the
kid and ditch it to a surrogate (to be played by Amy Poehler). Michael "I
co-wrote the last two Austin Powers movies" McCullers is writing and
directing, while genius SNL figurehead and mostly crap movie producer Lorne
Michaels will be, well, producing.

–Some might remember Jennifer Aniston from the tabloid hits
Brad and Jennifer Get Married or The Breakup 2: Making babies with Angelina is
More Fun. While her personal life has overshadowed anything she’s done since
her great performance in The Good Girl (or maybe that’s thanks to choices like
Bruce Almighty and Along Came Polly?), Jennifer continues to keep on keepin’
on. Anniston is
producing and potentially starring in Goree Girls, a women in prison story less
about sweaty voyeurism and girl on girl violence/love and more about the true
story of a group of 1940s convicts who form up a country western band (who were
eventually pardoned). Goree Girls
will be distributed by Dreamworks.
